Call for Papers

The 2015 Conference will be held in London, UK from 24-26 June and will focus on the theme Towards Open Science.

Open Science is underpinned by the following broad principles :

  • Transparency in experimental methodology, observation, and collection of data
  • Public availability and reusability of scientific data.
  • Public accessibility and transparency of scientific communication.
  • Using web-based tools to facilitate scientific collaboration.

It is clear that libraries have a key role in enabling Open Science (see LIBER statement on Open Science<http://libereurope.eu/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/LIBER_Statement-on-open-science-final.pdf>). It is also apparent that libraries will have to show leadership, adapt the way they measure impact and deliver services, and partner with other stakeholders in order to claim this role.

This conference invites papers that address these issues, explore the movement towards Open Science practice and policies, and provide examples of how libraries are acting as enablers and identifying and addressing key challenges related to implementing Open Science principles.

The deadline for submission of abstracts is 15 February 2015.
