OASPA2020 – Conference on Open Access Scholarly Publishing Moves Online
The OASPA 2020 Conference will take place online during the week of Monday 21 – Friday 25 September 2020. Please save the date in your diaries!
Further details will be released as soon as possible on this page, but you can sign up for conference updates if you would like us to send you information on how to attend as well as program updates as they become available.
While we will miss the in-person interaction that the conference has provided each year, we are excited by the prospect of enriching our discussions with more experiences and perspectives shared from colleagues across the world.
The 2020 conference will address open access at a time of global challenge, taking on the demands and opportunities for open scholarship in relation to past and future crises in different regions of the globe. OASPA 2020 will also be a forum for collective reflection on the impact of the coronavirus pandemic and our ongoing endeavour to ensure scholarship is open and accessible to all.
Registration is open from July 1st.
The Program Committee invites organisations and individuals to submit a proposal to us for ‘Poster Lightning Talk’ presentations. These are short talks showcasing new projects, ideas or initiatives accompanied by a poster (guidelines will be provided). There will be a brief q&a and a mechanism for online engagement.
All proposals should be submitted by July 10, 2020 to email@example.com. A brief description (up to a maximum of 300 words) of your proposal is sufficient at this stage. Registration costs for the authors of successful proposals will be waived.
Recordings, slides and posters from previous conferences, as well as information on how to register, can be found on our website here.
