COAR Annual meeting 2022

Conference

The Role of Repositories in the Radical Transformation of Scholarly Communications

With COVID-19 and the UNESCO Open Science Recommendation, open access and open science are high on the agenda of many countries around the world.  This presents an important opportunity for the repository community. Repositories are already increasingly considered critical research infrastructures that support inclusiveness and diversity in open science. Working together, we can further harness the power of the global repository network to transform the scholarly communications system, making it less costly, more innovative, and community-owned. This meeting will be a forum for discussions about strategies and activities that will bring about our collective vision for the role of repositories.

This year’s programme will focus on initiatives to connect, modernize, and innovate repositories and their networks, including a deep dive into COAR’s progress and plans for the Notify Project.

The keynote speech will be delivered by Dr. Björn Brembs, neurobiologist and outspoken advocate for open science and scholarly publishing reform.
