2013 Reduce, Re-Use, Recycle
Taking the environmentalists' slogan as our starting point, this panel will discuss the ways in which the intellectual environment can be conserved and enriched by new(er) forms of publishing—some in fact very old. We'll consider the current trend of short-form publishing in several veins: reduced, essay-style publications; re-used material, such as extracted chapters published as stand-alone volumes; and recycled content such as blog-to-book and serialized publications. We'll be mixing publishing strategy and experience with some wishful thinking in an adventurous dialog that we hope will be both controversial and constructive.
