IFLA Lyon 2014Du 15 au 21 août a eu lieu, à Lyon, le Congrès annuel de l’IFLA, la fédération mondiale des Bibliothèques et des bibliothécaires. Le thème du Congrès de cette année fut:« Libraries, Citizens, Societies: Confluence for Knowledge ». Il a réuni plus de 4000 participants internationaux dont plusieurs collaborateurs de la BnL.

La Déclaration de Lyon, présentée lors du colloque IFLA, appelle les États Membres des Nations Unies à reconnaître que l’accès équitable à l’information, aux connaissances et aux compétences, est essentiel au développement durable. Elle vise à s’assurer que ce principe figure dans le programme de développement post-2015 des Nations Unies.

L’alphabétisation universelle, le droit à l’éducation et au travail digne, nécessitent une plus grande disponibilité et accessibilité de ressources de qualité. En tant que médiateurs de l’information, les bibliothèques jouent un rôle capital dans la mise à disposition démocratique de l’information, de la culture et de tous types de savoirs. Ainsi, la Bibliothèque nationale figure parmi les 245 instituts signataires de ladite déclaration. (www.lyondeclaration.org)

Dr. Anne-Laure Mention, head of the Innovation Economics & Service Valuation unit, at the CRP Henri Tudor, is co-editor of the Journal of Innovation Management.

The Journal of Innovation Management adopts a multidisciplinary perspective on innovation. In doing this, it fills an existing gap by hosting visionary and eloquent research streams enabling the understanding of innovation, appreciating differentiation and striving for academic excellence and insights for practice. The Journal aims at paving new ways of fostering innovation and at bridging the gaps between the different communities involved in the definition of innovation policies, in the analysis of the innovation process and its multiple outcomes, and in its implementation in both public and private entities. It brings the reality of innovation at hand by fostering a philosophy of true innovation management by encapsulating insights, valuable experiences and theoretical streams. With this initiative, the Founding Editors aim at creating a new “Blue Ocean” and at reconfiguring the publishing “arena” by combining the best of both worlds while adopting simultaneously a visionary approach on innovation management and the current shift occurring in the business model of publishing practices.

Furthermore, the Journal of Innovation Management aims at hosting the debate for innovation, whatever form and facet it takes, and its management. Particular attention is paid to the multidisciplinary nature of the innovation, thus embracing both its technological features and its managerial process. Issues of the journal will typically contain academic papers, letters from industry thought leaders, academics, and policy makers, book reviews and commentaries. Four issues per year will be released, and some special issues are also foreseen, so as to concentrate on dedicated themes, which will be addressed from multiple angles. The ultimate aims are to foster cross fertilization across disciplines, to bridge gaps between academia, practice and policy making, to raise awareness on innovation and entrepreneurship, its challenges and its impact as well as to shape new reflections and thoughts on innovation, and its management. A broad scope of readership in innovation and entrepreneurship is expected. With its full open access policy, the Journal of Innovation Management is a platform for exchanging ideas in both horizontal and vertical dimensions of innovation management. The idea is to publish topical research works, practitioners’ insights and case studies on innovation with true multidisciplinary flavor.

The 3rd issue is forthcoming and should be available during the Summer.

To read issue 1 and 2, please visit www.open-jim.org

Front Cover Capital in the Twenty-First CenturyWhat are the grand dynamics that drive the accumulation and distribution of capital? Questions about the long-term evolution of inequality, the concentration of wealth, and the prospects for economic growth lie at the heart of political economy. But satisfactory answers have been hard to find for lack of adequate data and clear guiding theories. In Capital in the Twenty-First Century, Thomas Piketty analyzes a unique collection of data from twenty countries, ranging as far back as the eighteenth century, to uncover key economic and social patterns. His findings will transform debate and set the agenda for the next generation of thought about wealth and inequality.

Piketty shows that modern economic growth and the diffusion of knowledge have allowed us to avoid inequalities on the apocalyptic scale predicted by Karl Marx. But we have not modified the deep structures of capital and inequality as much as we thought in the optimistic decades following World War II. The main driver of inequality—the tendency of returns on capital to exceed the rate of economic growth—today threatens to generate extreme inequalities that stir discontent and undermine democratic values. But economic trends are not acts of God. Political action has curbed dangerous inequalities in the past, Piketty says, and may do so again.

A work of extraordinary ambition, originality, and rigor, Capital in the Twenty-First Century reorients our understanding of economic history and confronts us with sobering lessons for today.
