Now in its 9th year, COASP is a vital conference for the open access publishing community to gather to develop and advance discussions, relationships, policy and research around open access publishing. As in previous years, delegates from a wide range of backgrounds will be brought together for an exciting range of panels, events, and networking opportunities. We are proud to consistently offer global, diverse perspectives on publishing each year, and welcome attendees at all stages of their careers who work in publishing, librarianship, government, higher education, funding agencies, nonprofits, and other affiliated industries. Community and collaboration is at the heart of open access publishing, and we are excited to offer both again at COASP this year for all those working in open access around the world.
Speakers so far confirmed include Jean-Claude Burgelman (European Commission), Jessica Polka (ASAPbio), Louise Page (PLOS), Robert Kiley (Wellcome Trust), and Vanessa Proudman (SPARC Europe). Panel topics this year are: The market for APCs; Open infrastructure in scholarly communications; Research evaluation and assessment; Open peer review in both journal publishing and in open access books and monographs publishing.
A pre-conference reception for delegates will be held on the evening of Tuesday 19th September. The full program for the conference will be announced as soon as possible. #COASP9
