Since the advent of the web, scientific and scholarly communication has been in highly disruptive phase. There are new forms of publication, new standards and expectations, new ways of measuring and demonstrating success, new challenges and pitfalls. These are topics that cross disciplines and are applicable to researchers at all career stages. For academics and researchers, understanding and succeeding in this environment is of crucial importance. The purpose of this summer institute is to address the changes and give participants the skills and tools they need to thrive in this new environment.
Instructors include some the top researchers and thought leaders from scholarly and scientific communication and publishing. Course topics range from an introductory overview to advanced offerings in collaboration, reproducibility, the public humanities, research mentorship, and others.
All levels of participants, from absolute beginners to advanced at scholarly communication, will find courses of interest. If you are a scholar/researcher, student, or anyone else who participates in scholarly communication, you will benefit from attending FSCI.
