2021 Scholarly Communication Unconference

SCUNC_Logo_horizontalMarch 11-12, 2021 – Via Zoom

ASERL is pleased to announce its fourth Scholarly Communications Unconference (“SCUNC”). This year’s conference will be completely virtual.

What is an “Unconference”?

Unconferences are decentralized, participatory affairs. Anyone with an idea can initiate a session to discuss, teach, hack, build, problem-solve, or any combination of those things. Rather than a single speaker pontificating from the front of the room, unconferences encourage open discussion and participation.

Why should I attend SCUNC?

SCUNC is really your conference. While embracing the unconference ethos, SCUNC participants will focus discussions around practical applications of scholarly communication, including open access, alternative collection strategies, digital publishing, copyright, IRs, altmetrics, and other areas of interest to you, the scholcomm practitioners.

To ensure a good group dynamic, this event will be limited to 100 participants. ASERL members only, please.  Registrations will be accepted on a first-come, first served basis.
