The ‘Reinventing Scholarly Publishing’ symposium in March 2015 started a year of particularly active discussions in Australia about the future of scholarly publishing. The Canberra event was followed by a Sydney conference ‘Scholarly Communication Beyond Paywalls’ in July and another symposium in August, ‘Reclaiming the Knowledge Commons: The Ethics of Academic Publishing and the Futures of Research’, held at the NSW State Library. And the last one in the series, the 24th ‘National Scholarly Communications Forum’ took place on 7 September at The Australian National University, Canberra.
