A conference at the Academy of Sciences and Literature, Mainz/Germany, 26–27 January 2016, in conjunction with the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz JGU.
The 2-days conference investigated the role of peer review and open access in university knowledge dissemination and evaluation.

Day 2 addressed open access in knowledge dissemination, with a particular focus on potentials and implications of new ways to disseminate knowledge for evaluating the quality of research. The academic discussions on peer review and open access was guided, locally grounded, and summarised by an accompanying panel of university managers from Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU) responsible for handling the knowledge landscapes of their university on a daily basis.
