The evolving nature of Scholarly Communication roles means that no two roles are the same. These roles can have many elements including repository management, some open data, some responsible metrics, some REF management, some copyright and licensing, some working with the media… and some all of the above. We are aiming to bring together all the aspects of Scholarly Communication into one event, with an opportunity to hear about the practical approaches being taken, to share ideas and resources, and develop new networks.

Who should attend?
The conference will bring together day-to-day practitioners of Scholarly Communications, primarily those who work at institutions across the UK, although international participants are, of course, welcome – those supporting Scholarly Communication from library and/or research services, including those whose role have a component of Scholarly Communications, i.e. repository manager, open data, responsible metrics, REF, copyright or advocacy but that don’t consider themselves experts in the field of Scholarly Communications.
The University of Kent, Canterbury, is a self-contained campus providing a welcoming environment, set among green and tranquil open space, with views over Canterbury and it’s 11th century Cathedral. The conference will take place in our newly refurbished Templeman Library. The venue address is University of Kent, Library Road, Canterbury, CT2 7NU. The campus is located just two miles from Canterbury city centre where you can explore this medieval city’s history and heritage and visit a range of shops and restaurants.
