Limited Capacity seats available

Realizing a future of open scholarship and science will be dependent upon a holistic foundation of policies, technologies, services, and incentives.  This moderated discussion will explore the scholarly communication needs and expectations of students and early career researchers, with attention to the infrastructure “pieces” that will make openness the norm, rather than the exception.  We will address, for example, the importance and influence of scholarly identities and impact, collaborative spaces, research data management, and open access policies.  A panel of early career researchers, librarians, senior scholars, and research networking tool providers will lead an interactive discussion with attendees that concretely envisions a more connected, collaborative, impactful, and open research environment for emerging scholars and scientists.
