Earlybird registrations open for the 10th Conference on Open Access Scholarly Publishing (COASP)
Earlybird registrations are now open for the 10th anniversary of our annual conference, the Conference on Open Access Scholarly Publishing (COASP), which will take place on September 17th-19th, 2018, at the University of Vienna, Austria. To register, please head to our Registrations and Accommodation page.
The full program for the conference is now available here.
Now in its 10th anniversary year, COASP is a major annual scholarly publishing conference that 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. In this important celebratory year for COASP, we will be kicking off the conference with an ‘Early Movers’ panel, in which key actors from the early years of the open access movement – Vitek Tracz, David Prosser, Susan Murray, Marin Dacos, Leslie Chan, and Caroline Sutton – discuss the history of the movement and the great progress in open access publishing that has been made since COASP held its first conference in 2008, and reflect on where open access publishing is heading today.
Panel topics this year are: F.A.I.R. Research Outputs; Open Access Monographs; Transformative Agreements; and New Models in Open Access Publishing. As always, we will host a broad range of interdisciplinary global perspectives on other panels and in keynotes, and offer a large number of networking opportunities for further discussion and collaboration between attendees. We welcome delegates from a wide range of backgrounds at all stages of their careers who are working in publishing, librarianship, government, higher education, funding agencies, nonprofits, and other affiliated industries.
Two networking receptions for delegates will be held on the evenings of Monday 17th and Tuesday 18th September.
The conference is being discussed on social media with the hashtag #COASP10. Enquiries regarding the conference should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
