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.
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:
Email 200-250 word abstracts to Scholarly Communications Project Manager Micah Vandegrift firstname.lastname@example.org or submit your proposal via this form - http://bit.ly/digiFSU. Please indicate if your proposal is for a presentation or to serve on the panel.
Accepted presenters will be notified by October 14th.
