OASPA2024 Conference on Open Access Scholarly Publishing

The OASPA annual conference brings the open access community together to discuss new developments and innovations in scholarly publishing, and unite in our shared goal to enable research around the world to be openly accessible in line with our mission.
The 2024 conference will encourage participants to consider how we might all work towards truly equitable and inclusive open scholarship practices as well as address many timely and fundamental topics relating to open scholarly communication. The conference will be held in Lisbon 16-18 September 2024. We welcome participants for collective reflection and discussion.

Call for Panel Session Proposals

The call for panel proposals is now open. We would like to hear your suggestions for panels addressing how we progress equitable and inclusive open scholarship practices.  OASPA invites proposals to be submitted by the deadline of April 10, 2024. Full information can be found on our blog.

Proposals should not be promotional in nature. We ask that panels are diverse in terms of ethnicity and gender, and to ensure speakers include members of any communities under discussion.

We particularly welcome submissions from beyond North America and Europe. Please share this call widely within your networks.

Our usual call for lightning talk poster proposals will follow in the coming months. These are short talks showcasing new projects, ideas or initiatives accompanied by a poster.
We look forward to receiving your suggestions!
