    Janneke Adema explores in her paper the relationship between openness and experimentation in scholarly publishing, outlining how open access in specific has enabled a reimagining of its forms and practices. Whilst Adema emphasises that this relationship is far from guaranteed, through the concept of scholarly poethics she speculates on how we can forge a connection between the doing of scholarship and its political, ethical and aesthetical elements.
