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 2022 online conference will encourage participants to think Beyond Open Access to equitable open scholarship and science practices and will address many timely and fundamental topics relating to open scholarly communication.
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 during poster sessions.
We particularly welcome submissions from beyond North America and Europe. Please share this call widely within your networks.
All proposals should be submitted by June 17, 2022 via this form which asks for a brief description (up to a maximum of 300 words) of your proposal. Registration costs for the authors of successful proposals will be waived.
Registration information, 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!
