10:30 - 18:00, Monday 11 April 2016.


Music publishing and writing about music have always pushed at the
boundaries of publishing technology. And the dissemination of music
documents often challenges our notions of authorial ownership. As
digital technology increasingly dominates the production and
dissemination of scholarly content, including original writing,
critical editions, and creative practice, how will music research rise
to the challenges it poses?

This one day event forms part of the Academic Book of the Future
project and aims to explore how digital production and dissemination
will impact on music publishing and scholarship in the coming
years. Topics covered will include: what will be the best practice for
encoding, dissemination, and preservation of music notation? How will
online collaboration affect the production and ownership of digital
music editions? How can the narrative structures and arguments of
scholarly discourse and of music editions be preserved in a context of
'random access' (from search engines, etc.)? Should scholars and
artists publish their work (writing, editions, compositions) as Open
Access, and should they carry out their drafting processes in public,
making early editions and edit histories available online?



Attendance is free (including refreshments, lunch and a wine
reception). However places are limited so please book in advance using
