About APE

The APE International Conferences have been organized annually at the beginning of the year without interruption since 2006. During the Covid pandemic, the APE took place virtually for its editions APE 2021 and APE 2022. The conferences bring together all stakeholders in scholarly communications and scientific publishing. The main participants are academic, educational, scientific, technological, medical, and legal publishers, university presses, research funders, researchers, authors, editors, librarians, teachers, learned and professional societies and associations, funding agencies, policy makers, subscription agencies and booksellers, recruiting agencies and technology providers. 

The APE Conferences underline the role of specialized information, promoting the creation, description, and dissemination of research results in the form of publications by universities, colleges, research institutions and scientific societies.

In summer 2020, the Berlin Institute for Scholarly Publishing (BISP), a not-for-profit organization dedicated to bringing publishers, researchers, funders, and policymakers together, took over the logistics for the Academic Publishing in Europe Conference. APE founder Arnoud de Kemp continued supporting the Conference in his role as Chairman of the Program Committee.
