The Future of Scholarly Communications in Economics will be discussed in Hamburg at the end of the month. The event is chaired by Mark McCabe, from Boston University and the University of Michigan, and is being organized by Economics: The Open-Access, Open-Assessment E-Journal.

On March 30–31, 2015, in the Hamburg branch of the ZBW – Leibniz Information Centre for Economics, the speakers will include names like Mark Armstrong (Oxford University), Bruno S. Frey (Zeppelin University Friedrichshafen), Maren Duvendack (University of East Anglia), and Christian Zimmermann (Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis). The event is free but space is limited.

In recent years, scholarly communication has changed in many ways, partly in response to the growth of the internet and because of technology in general. These internet-driven changes to the research process are affecting the roles of publishers, libraries, and scientific communities.
