CFP: The Future of Scholarly Publishing

Hello readers! Micah asked me to share this with my fellow grad students at FSU, and sharing a link seems easier than copying the entire thing in multiple e-mails, etc. Of course, I suspect other folks are welcome to participate (and certainly attend) as well!

The Future of Scholarly Publishing – A Symposium

Florida State University Libraries will host a symposium titled “The Future of Scholarly Publishing” as part of International Open Access Week. The event will feature a lecture by Dr. Mark Riley, Chair of the Department of Physics “What is Open Access and Why Does it Matter?” Following the lecture will be a panel discussion and lightning talks on topics, issues and ideas surrounding scholarly communication in the digital age. The event will be held Oct 28th from 9am-12pm in Strozier Library’s Scholars Commons Reading Room.

Proposals are now being accepted for panelists and/or lightning talks relating to the future directions of scholarship in light of the tools and possibilities afforded by the open web. Lightning talks should be 5 minutes or less, and can be accompanied by slides or other presentation tools. This type of talk offers a creative and different approach to the academic presentation while emphasizing brevity and simplicity in sharing knowledge. Examples can be seen at http://igniteshow.com.  Faculty, graduate students, and undergraduate students are encouraged to submit 200-250 word abstracts for participation.

Possible topics include, but should not be limited to:

  • Open educational resources
  • Open data
  • Open government
  • Institutional repositories
  • Digital humanities
  • E-science
  • Data curation
  • Data mining in the humanities
  • Blogging as scholarship
  • The database as scholarship
  • Open peer review
  • Linked Open Data
  • Evolving journal models
