By researchers, for researchers: promote discussions on scholarly communication at academic conferences LIMITED

Limited Capacity seats available

To get more researchers involved in discussions around scholarly communication, Open Access, Open Science and publication culture, this workshop aims to come up with an actionable plan to get these discussion on the agenda at field-specific academic conferences. Three key areas of intersection with researchers' interests are: a) dissemination and outreach, b) funding and mandates and c) reproducibility.

We will identify what’s currently already happening in these areas at bigger and smaller conferences (like SfN), talk about best practices to facilitate these discussions (e.g. to get tracks/sessions scheduled), and, inspired in part by the Software/Data Carpentry curriculum and the Mozilla Science Lab training program, explore some sort of blueprint for proposals, with a roster of people in various disciplines who would be willing to participate.

We are especially inviting researchers (in all disciplines) to participate in this workshop. Tell us what you would like to see happen at conferences in your field, and let’s work together to make that a reality!

Prior to the workshop, we are crowdsourcing peoples experiences at the various conferences they attend, through this Google Sheet:
