The Bibliodiversity Observatory collects studies, analysis, and measurement tools produced by the Alliance, in collaboration with its partners. It is built around issues identified as priorities by independent publishers for the 2015-2018 period.
Aimed at professionals and public authorities, the Observatory’s mission includes assessing and strengthening bibliodiversity in the various regions of the world.
As an independent, evolving and collaborative space, the Observatory’s role includes :
- a “research and analysis” pillar : resource centre focusing on major issues related to independent publishing ;
- an “advocacy” pillar, including awareness and influence strategies ;
- a “measure tool” pillar, including bibliodiversity indicators (currently being developed).
The International Alliance of independent publishers acknowledges and thanks publishers and their partners (international organisations, Ministries of Culture, unions, etc.…) for their contributions and commitment to the Bibliodiversity Observatory.
