“The Institute offered rich opportunities for conversation and networking with individuals from different disciplines and backgrounds. Overall, my takeaway from FSCI2018 was extremely valuable!”

You know the value of FSCI - If you are a scholar, researcher, librarian, institution administrator, funding agency manager, publishing administrator/editor, data manager, student, or any individual who participates in scholarly communication, we have fantastic classes for you.  We urge you to return to FSCI, and bring a colleague! FSCI2019 offers participants 5 immersive days of training and skills development in new modes of research communication. All levels of participants, from beginners to advanced, will find courses of interest.  There are 27 COURSES to choose from (see list below) - for more information on any of them, be sure to check out the COURSE ABSTRACTS.  Instructors are coming from 6 continents, including experts in scholarly communication from many disciplines and communities of practice. The diversity of perspectives provided by the instructors and attendees is one of FSCI’s key strengths, allowing for comprehensive exploration of the issues in class discussions. We hope you’ll take advantage of this fantastic educational opportunity and join the conversation!
