James Evans to Deliver APE Keynote

James Evans will deliver a keynote address to the 2014 conference on Academic Publishing in Europe on Jan. 27th in Berlin. In the talk, James will explore how academic publishing reveals the state and change in science, scholarship and society; but also how publishing contributes to how science as an institution thinks - what it (collectively) attends to; how it combines elements together; what risks it takes; and what outcomes it optimizes. James will also examine some recent changes in the technology of publishing like the Internet and consider their influence on how science thinks. Finally, he will explore how insights into the influence of incentives and scientific publishing can be used to design better institutions ... and better science.
