Call for papers for London conference

Organisers of the Researcher to Reader conference have reminded potential delegates that its call for papers closes at the end of August.

The annual scholarly communications conference will next take place in London on 25 and 26 February. The event is attended by around 150 to 200 delegates from all parts of the scholarly communications lifecycle – including funders, researchers, research managers, publishers, distributors, technologists and librarians. 

The conference advisory board is inviting proposals for workshops, presentations, panels, lightning talks and debates, as well as looking for facilitators to help lead workshops. The organisers are particularly keen to encourage proposals from librarians, researchers, editors and funders, from people based outside the UK, and from under-represented demographics.

Proposers are invited to provide an abstract (50 to 100 words) and a fuller description (200 to 500 words) by 31 August.  To submit your proposal, please visit
