Our annual conference will return on Wednesday 20 November – and we’re now inviting librarians and information professionals to help us build a programme around delivering the open research agenda.
Organised by Research Information magazine in partnership with Info International, Challenges in the Scholarly Publishing Cycle 2019 (CISPC) will be held at London Art House.
This year’s CISPC is specifically aimed at librarians and information professionals looking to further the open research agenda. It will incorporate the following themes:
- Convincing academics to share research;
- Tackling the administrative overhead of open research submissions;
- How technology tools can help smooth submission and searchability; and
- Publishing ‘work in progress’ vs the wait for completed research articles.
So, do you have a successful project in this field that you would be willing to share with your fellow professionals?
In particular we want to hear about how you are helping researchers at your institution, and this event will provide a platform for you to share your experiences and to learn from others!
We are now accepting applications for papers/presenters at this event. To apply, please send a title, author and 150 word summary of your proposed presentation to Tim Gillett, editor of Research Information, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you’d like to discuss the content of your paper before submitting, Tim will be happy to talk to you on +44 (0)1223 221040.
Deadline for paper submissions EXTENDED to 21 June.
Please forward this email to colleagues and fellow professionals whom you think may have a good success story to share.
