Get ready for FSCI 2024:
Increasing Transparency, Integrity, and Trust in Research
Featuring virtual online courses
An in-person meeting at UCLA in Los Angeles
The dates are set and the Call for Courses is live for the FORCE11 Scholarly Communication Institute (FSCI), which will be held:
Virtually, Online: Monday, July 22nd through Friday July 26th, and
In-person at UCLA: Monday, July 29th through Wednesday, July 31st
Increasing Transparency, Integrity, and Trust in Research is the FSCI 2024 theme. FSCI organizers seek course submissions contributing to this theme, though all ideas in scholarly communication are welcome for consideration. The theme will also shape the institute’s plenary events. With the increasing prominence of AI, it is essential that the research and scholarly communication communities emphasize transparency, enhance integrity, and renew trust in our community’s work. We hope to focus on these components as we present courses on topics within the scholarly communication ecosphere.
Save these dates in your calendar! Further, please help us get the word out to your colleagues in research and scholarly communication by sharing this information with your network. As always, thanks for your assistance in helping FSCI to develop and grow.
