Our 2019 conference will provide librarians and information professionals with an invaluable insight into best practice for delivering the open research agenda.

With funders placing an increasing emphasis on open research, librarians are faced with the challenge of changing entrenched practices among researchers – particularly around the submission stage.

At CISPC 2019, we will be bringing together speakers from around the world that have addressed this challenge head on, and who will share their experiences and expertise with fellow scholarly communication professionals.

Conference themes

  • Convincing academics to share research
  • Tackling the administrative overhead of open research submissions
  • How technology tools can help smooth submission and searchability
  • Publishing ‘work in progress’ vs the wait for completed research articles

Who should attend?

Librarians/information professionals wanting to improve researcher support and communication in the open research era

Researchers/academics wanting to understand the benefits and challenges of delivering open research

Publishers who want to develop platforms and submission channels that support the open research agenda

Vendors/service providers of tools that serve open research
