European Conference on Scientific Publishing in Biomedicine and Medicine

Leiden, Netherlands


   Leiden University Medical Center

   European Conference on Scientific Publishing in Biomedicine and

   ESCP 2010 will be held: 27-29 May 2010 in the Leiden University
   Medical Center, the Netherlands. The principal aim of Conference
   series is to broaden researchers’ understanding and knowledge of the
   rapid changes in the scientific communication and publishing
   environment and its direct impact on the research community. Open
   Access, ‘wikification’ of science communication, dealing with
   information overload, ‘translation’ of scientific knowledge from
   laboratory bench to hospital bed and other aspects of the impact of
   science on society at large, are all of major interest to STM
   (Scientific, Technical & Medical) Publishing worldwide and the
   research community itself.

   Conference themes

   The conference addresses three major themes essential to research
   scientists and academic clinicians, as well as publishers: Open Access
   and beyond, Impact of science, Translational Medicine
