CFP: SJSU Open Access Conference 2017 (San Jose, California - October 23, 2017)

In celebration of Open Access Week, San Jose State University will be hosting its biennial one-day conference on October 23, 2017. This conference theme invites reflections on where Open Access is now and how we got here. Topics can explore Open Access as it relates to education, publishing, science, data, etc. on all things Open: Open Access, Open Educational Resources, Open Education. Please consider submitting a proposal related to:
  • How do we situate Open today?
  • In what ways has Open been replaced with APCs and corporate models in publishing?
  • How could we re-place or resituate Open to include the Global South?
We will consider proposals for individual presentations and panels organized around a theme. Presentations are scheduled for either 60 minutes or 30 minutes. In the final program, 30-minute sessions will be paired. We are also offering a lightning round session consisting of 5- to 10-minute presentations.
