Call for submissions – Issue 5, Bibliodiversity journal: “Independent publishing and public authorities”

The call for submissions of the issue 5 of Bibliodiversity journal is open!
This next issue (publication in 2017), dedicated to “Independent publishing and public authorities” has not to aim to decide in favour of this or that public-policy model relating to independent publishers. Rather, it seeks to investigate the conditions in which such public policies may or may not emerge, their aims, their modes of operation, their impacts and the changes they may undergo. It explores the world views that come into play when players from publishing or the public authorities formulate their positions. The contributions we’re looking for may come from a range of disciplines – sociology, political sciences, economic sciences, cultural studies, etc. – and may refer to national/regional case studies or take a comparative approach.

We are waiting for your propositions by 31 March 2016 (read the call for submissions below).
