Success as APE event goes virtual.
Organisers of the Academic Publishing in Europe (APE) event in Berlin report that the conference was a great success in its first year in a virtual format.
Newly under the new auspices of the Berlin Institute for Scholarly Publishing, the organising team reported that there were various technical glitches on the first day--almost inevitable when introducing a new format--but that the traditionally strong programme and a plethora of expert speakers more than made up for any teething problems.
Many of the sessions were filmed at APE's traditional home, the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities. At the time of going to press most of the sessions have been optimised for audio and video and are now available to view for delegates--they will be available in high-quality format until the end of the year on the Morressier platform.
Anyone who missed registering for the conference but who might be interested in this year's topics can purchase an archive ticket: https://ti.to/ape2021.eu/ape2021
The Berlin Institute for Scholarly Publishing will use surplus funds from this and future APE Conferences towards developing a series of training courses and seminars for early-career publishers and early-career professionals who work for research funders.
The APE organising team would like to thank sponsors, co-sponsors and media partners--and the event's new patron, the Berlin University Alliance, for its support.
