Now in its 11th year, the OASPA annual Conference on Open Access Scholarly Publishing is a major 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. This year, we will be kicking off the conference with a ‘Funders’ panel. Chaired by Robert Kiley (Head of Open Research, Wellcome Trust), this will be a discussion between representatives of international funders with an extended Q&A.
Other panels and keynotes will cover Inclusive Globalisation, Emerging Research, Research Culture, Radical Futures and Open Access Books. The full program for the conference will be announced as soon as possible.
As always, we will host a broad range of interdisciplinary global perspectives in panels and 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 Tuesday 24th and Wednesday 25th September. Please feel free to discuss the conference on social media using the hashtag #OASPA2019. Enquiries regarding the conference should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope you can join us!
