The OASPA annual conference brings the open access community together to discuss new developments and innovations in scholarly publishing, and unite in our shared goal to enable research around the world to be openly accessible. The 2020 online conference will address open access at a time of global challenge, taking on the demands and opportunities for open scholarship in relation to past and future crises in different regions of the globe. OASPA 2020 will also be a forum for collective reflection on the impact of the coronavirus pandemic and our ongoing endeavour to ensure scholarship is open and accessible to all.
The Program Committee invites organisations and individuals to submit a proposal to us for ‘Poster Lightning Talk’ presentations. These are short talks showcasing new projects, ideas or initiatives accompanied by a poster (guidelines will be provided). There will be a brief q&a and a mechanism for online engagement.
All proposals should be submitted by July 10, 2020 to firstname.lastname@example.org. A brief description (up to a maximum of 300 words) of your proposal is sufficient at this stage. Registration costs for the authors of successful proposals will be waived.
Recordings, slides and posters from previous conferences, as well as information on how to register, can be found on our website here.
We look forward to receiving your suggestions!
