Courses will be conducted during the week of July 31 through August 4. Each course will meet three times via Zoom as in prior years, on Tuesday, August 1; Wednesday, August 2; and Thursday, August 3. Courses can continue collaborative asynchronous work after those dates if needed or desired.

  • Enhancing the Global Impact of Open Scholarship is the FSCI 2023 theme and will shape plenary events. As open scholarship expands worldwide through increased public access to publications, data, and other research components, we seek to harness the potential of this sharing to enhance its impact on improving the knowledge and wellbeing of individuals worldwide. Courses that can exemplify this theme are highly desirable.
  • We seek courses that leverage the online learning environment to engage our global community of researchers and professionals in scholarly communication and open research practices. For examples, see the FSCI 2022 course list.
  • New instructors and proposals are encouraged to apply. Returning courses and instructors are also welcomed.
  • Courses are urged to incorporate practical tools as a way to illustrate key concepts. Proposals that are solely tutorials for a single platform or tool are discouraged. 

If you have questions about course scope or any other issues, please contact to discuss how your course idea aligns with FSCI’s attendees.

Submission deadline: Monday, January 16, 2023
