At the 4th International Conference on Publishing Trends and Contexts particular attention will be given to the value of publishing contents on modern markets. With digital transformation, globalisation and conglomeration in publishing and bookselling, set of unanswered problems increases every day. Some experts think that all publishing is shrunk down to marketing. Some protests against diminishing of editorial rule. Some highlight advantages of social media, some are concerned about their impact on culture of reading. All agree that the value of the content, if properly edited and publicized, is increasing.
