The panel will tackle the question why publishing academic work in small languages matters and deal with an issue where is the place for academic publisher in the global scientific publishing landscape.
Academic publishing is a hybrid: on one hand, there are a few multi-billion international corporations that publish majority of scientific papers in English. Yet, on the other hand all around the globe, there exist a set of smaller university presses that publish academic and scientific books and journals in their local languages and (sometimes) in English. How do these two publishing ecosystems interact? What kind of future is there in regional/local academic publishing? Arunas: importance of monographs in small markets.
