New Directions Seminar Early Registration Closes Sept 8!

Spend less, get more!

Early bird registration for New Directions in Scholarly Publishing “Navigating the Shifting Sands: Managing Disruptions in Scholarly Communications” ends September 8, 2023 – that’s less than a month away!

The seminar keynote will be presented by Dr. Rebecca Weintraub Brendel, who is the Director of the Center for Bioethics and the Director of the Master of Science in Bioethics program at Harvard Medical School. She’ll be talking about navigating new directions in research integrity, what drives fraud, and safeguarding quality and trust in scholarly communications. Dr. Brendel’s presentation is sure to spark some lively conversations.

Additional sessions include:

  • The Impact of Externalities: Rethinking Funding, Research Projects, and the Global Body of Knowledge
  • Tech Topics that ChatGPT Thinks You Should Know About
  • Exploring New Directions: Reverse Roundtable Discussions
  • Sharing and Publishing Research Data: Challenges & Opportunities
  • New Directions in Research Integrity
  • Authorship in the Age of AI
  • Rethinking Peer Review: Will New Models Bring New Voices to the Scholarly Dialogue?
  • Coping with New Directions: Developing a Growth Mindset

Viewed through the lens of a typical research workflow, we can observe disruptions and systemic changes underway at every step along the journey. The 2023 New Directions seminar will be designed to address where and how the “sands” are shifting at each junction of the scholarly communications lifecycle. Sessions will address topics from how changing funder mandates and AI tools are impacting researcher practices to open peer review, data sharing, and more. We hope to close the session with a change management workshop-style session designed to support resiliency in publishing professionals.

The New Directions seminar will be held on October 4 and 5 at the AGU Conference Center in Washington, DC, and online. You don’t want to miss this event, and by registering before September 8, you could save up to $50! Learn more and register now!
