The future of research dissemination: Events at Congress 2014

Tuesday, May 20, 2014

Karen Diepeveen, Policy Analyst, Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences

The issue of open access and research dissemination is one that sparks many conversations across our fields. What is the future of scholarly work in this digital age? How – or should – scholars adapt? What kind of impact will these new models have on publishing?

The Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences provides an ideal backdrop for these questions to be discussed and debated, with more than 8,000 scholars, publishers, readers and researchers gathering together. In that spirit, we have compiled a list of events open to all Congress delegates that will explore the relationship between research and open access, dissemination, publishing and use.
