« Now in its 11th year, the OASPA annual conference is a major scholarly publishing conference that 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. This year, the conference began with a ‘Funders’ panel: chaired by Robert Kiley (Head of Open Research, Wellcome Trust), it was a discussion between representatives of international funders with an extended Q&A.
Other panels and keynotes focused on Inclusive Globalisation, Emerging Research, Research Culture, Radical Futures, and Open Access Books. As always, we welcomed a broad range of interdisciplinary global perspectives in panels and keynotes, and offered a large number of networking opportunities for further discussion and collaboration between attendees. We have welcomed delegates from a wide range of backgrounds at all stages of their careers who are working in publishing, librarianship, government, higher education, funding agencies, nonprofits, and other affiliated industries. »
