Join an existing session even or propose a new one even as the event is ongoing. Looking forward to learning from the international #OpenPublish community!
Open Publishing Fest celebrates communities developing open creative, scholarly, technological, and civic publishing projects. Together, we find new ground to share our ideas.
This is at once a collaborative and distributed event. Sessions are hosted by individuals and organizations around the world as panel discussions, fireside chats, demonstrations, and performances. We connect those points to bring them in conversation with one another and map out what’s next.
We seek to build networks of resilience and care for people working on new ways to develop and share knowledge.
Join us by proposing a session. Proposals will be considered on a rolling basis up to and throughout the fest.
Meanwhile, MIT visiting scholar and sociologist, Philip N Cohen, wrote a primer for Scholarly Communication in Sociology that “will offer useful guidance for your career – to help you succeed in a competitive, opaque, inefficient system with little accountability. Knowing how the scholarly communication system works will help you navigate it successfully for your career ends. However, I also aspire to help you see the bigger picture in your career, and become an engaged citizen within this system so that we may work together to improve it.”
Courses Posted and Registration Open for the 2nd Annual FORCE11 Scholarly Communications Institute (FSCI2018). The Institute will again be hosted by the University of California, San Diego from July 30 – August 3, 2018. See more information here www.force11.org/fsci/2018.
