This session will consist of reviewed 5-minute talks by FSCI participants.  These short talks are meant to present something the speaker is passionate about, related to scholarly communications.  Talks may be about new technology that might change our lives or vanish without a trace, tell us about a policy that has made a difference somewhere, rants about how the scholarly communications world should be, and other topics.  The talks will inspire us to think and to discuss things that make an impact on scholarly communications.

Wednesday, August 7
8:30 am - 12:00 pm - Plenary Session Panel - What if Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society had never existed? Learning from the successes beyond the North Atlantic - Palisades Ballroom

  *   Gimena Del Rio Riande (Moderator), Researcher, Investigadora Adjunta CONICET in Argentina
  *   Dan O’Donnell, Professor of English, University of Lethbridge

Speakers from around the globe will be presenting in this centerpiece plenary session
Much of today’s debate around open access and scholarly communication in Northern America and Europe centers around how well plans developed in one part of this “North Atlantic” region might work in another, or, usually as an afterthought, in the “Global South”. In this session we want to turn this on its head. What would scholarly communication be like if our origin myth did not start in the UK’s Royal Society in London in 1665? Let’s imagine a world where Phil Trans never existed and we instead had developed our systems from the ideas underpinning the success stories of scholarly communications infrastructures and systems from Latin America, Asia and Africa, from beyond the English-speaking world, and from communities not traditionally considered as “scholarly”.

Virginia Steel, The UCLA Norman and Armena Powell University Librarian, and Alison Scott, the Associate University Librarian for Collections and Scholarly Communication, will discuss the University of California’s negotiations with Elsevier to secure a read and publish contract; Tom Olijhoek will discuss the European Union’s “Plan S” which requires state-funded research output to be Open by 2020; and Cameron Neylon will discuss recent results evaluating how universities are implementing Open Access globally. Who is doing this well? What is driving change, and in what direction? What will these changes mean for the scholarly communication ecosystem?  Come with questions and opinions, and join the discussion.

1:30 pm - 3:30 pm -  Keynote: Would including open scholarship in tenure guidelines move the needle?
Speaker: Juan Pablo Alperin<https://force11.us7.list-manage.com/track/click?u=5e2d2ee75f2d3afd1d39a666d&id=6e3559eed5&e=2e694a8dc5>, Assistant Professor in Publishing and Co-Director of the Scholarly Communications Lab
Despite all the arguments and evidence in favor of open scholarship, years of advocacy, tool building, mandates, and policies, less than half of the research that is published is publicly available. But what if we could magically add open scholarship practices as a valued activity in every salary review and tenure guideline document? Would such an explicit valuation of open scholarship for academic career advancement serve to move the needle? This presentation will challenge commonly held notions of the barriers to change through evidence from the analysis of hundreds of salary review and tenure guideline documents from universities in the United States and Canada, and from results of a survey of faculty from the same universities. This empirical exploration of what we say we value in academic careers, how we say it, and what we think our peers value may confirm your belief that review, promotion, and tenure processes affect the adoption of open scholarship practices—but it just won't be in the way you think they do.
