FORCE2024 is an in-person event bringing together thought leaders and practitioners to discuss the future of scholarly communications.

There will be presentations running in multiple tracks over the two and a half days. Presentations will be scheduled in blocks based on shared themes.

The overarching theme of FORCE2024 is driving transformation in scholarly communications locally and globally. While not exhaustive, sessions will be on the following topics:

  • Research Techniques
  • Research output (papers, data, software, etc) sharing
  • Persistent identifiers and the research graph
  • Peer review processes and innovation
  • Research assessment, recognition and credit systems.
  • Research integrity
  • Long term preservation of research objects
  • Applications of AI technologies in research communication
  • Equity and diversity issues in research processes
  • Other creative approaches to scholarly research communications!

What to expect?
Things will move quickly and talks will be interactive. While project updates and working groups discussions are common, we also make sure sessions go beyond what attendees can read online. All presenters strive to go straight to the aspects of their work that are thought-provoking and engaging.  Also, we will have several keynote/plenaries to break things up and tons of free time throughout the two and a half days to follow up with attendees and network.

FORCE2024 participants will conform to the following Code of Conduct:
