ABOUT FSCI2019

FSCI 2019 (FORCE11 Scholarly Communications Institute)  is being held this year at UCLA in Los Angeles, California from August 5 – 9, 2019.  It is the premiere community-led and organised summer school on current trends in Scholarly Communication. Our instructors are community members who are passionate about passing on their knowledge and experience to others in Scholarly Communication and Open Research. They range from up-and-coming researchers and practitioners to world-leading experts. The students they teach come from a wide variety of backgrounds: research, funding, administration, publishing, libraries, and information users; from absolute beginners to discipline leaders.

Sponsored by the UC Libraries, librarians from several of the UC campuses and several California Digital Library (CDL) staff are knee-deep in planning efforts to engage library decision-makers across the United States.

CP2OA18 is a “free two-day working forum for North American library or consortium leaders and key academic stakeholders centered on action-focused deliberations about redirecting subscription and other funds toward sustainable open access publishing.”

We’ve created a CP2OA18 reading list at the UC San Diego Library, starting with the Choosing Pathways Toolkit in addition to incorporating suggested resources and citations gathered from the various reports.The CP2OA working group will distribute preparation materials in coming months.

For updates, please watch this space.
