CFP: Open Access Sessions at National Federation of Advanced Information Services (NFAIS) - October 2018 Alexandria, Virginia

NFAIS Call For Presenters!

Interested in presenting at this event? Our call for presentations is open until July 31, 2018 

Open Access (OA) continues to offer transformative change in traditional scholarly research that is moving us toward an open science future. From research development to scholarly output, creating a more transparent end-to-end process allows unfettered sharing, inclusion and collaboration as a continuum in scientific research and discovery. As we support researchers through OA initiatives, we are creating science without barriers.

NFAIS will explore this multidimensional disruption at our "Movements and Models Supporting Open Access" conference on October 1 - 2, 2018 in Old Town Alexandria, VA, and we invite you join the discussion as a speaker!

The program will address emerging OA practices, statistics and analytics of open access models, and new publishing models that deliver fully affordable open access. If you are a university library supporting unique OA models, an advocate of open access, or can share how your organization is making progress on the OA movement, we invite you to become a speaker and share trends, new technologies, and applications to others in the industry. You may be selected to present alone, with a co-presenter, or as a panel.

NFAIS is looking for visionary, inspiring and future-focused presenters who can elevate discussions on open access, debate and provide practical ideas and solutions, as we explore thought-provoking topics such as open publishing and open peer reviews; policy, best practices and compliance; alternative models; and the role of the researcher in open access.
