Our online 2020 conference will build on the success of last year’s event by providing librarians and information professionals with deeper knowledge and understanding of communication strategies for open research.

In an increasingly open world – encompassing open research, open science and open data – the biggest challenges are around educating researchers about the changes they have to make to their working practices.

We’ll also be reflecting on the research landscape in a post-Covid world – the changes we’ve had to make this year, the medium-term outlook, and long-lasting – if not permanent – ways in which the scholarly publishing cycle will have to adjust in future years.

At CISPC 2020, we will be bringing together speakers from around the world that have developed effective scholarly communication strategies within their own institutions, and who will share their experiences and expertise with fellow scholarly communication professionals.

We will also be enabling delegates a place to share and learn from each other in a safe enviroment by providing several online rooms and a platform to connect.

CISPC will once again provide an environment for librarians and information professionals to learn from and engage with their peers about how to overcome challenges in the scholarly publishing cycle.
