Marking the debut of the Frankfurt Conference, the Academic and Scholarly session was dedicated to the transformation of the academic and research communication. Marking and disseminating for hundreds of years the research output, this form of communication became essential for educating generations of curious minds and for building trustful conversations which led to discoveries.
Academic and scholarly communication is now seen as a fertile ground to share and help more elements of the research cycle, among which the data sets, software, ethics and more. Open Science, strongly supported by universities, research funders and many publishers is a model which promises more transparency and interoperability to accelerate the new discoveries. It also shows a way to increase the collaborations between scientists and the broader society.
A reputable number of speakers from universities, libraries and publishing houses illustrated through real-life examples of how this transformation is made and what changes are expected for matching the expectations of researchers: a healthier, trustworthiness and diverse research environment.
The session combined a series of presentations with a live panel discussion where the audience could interact with the speakers. Missed the event? You can now watch the recordings free of charge with your My Book Fair profile.
