Share this on social media:

There is just one week remaining for a call for papers for the Researcher to Reader conference next February, with proposals due to be evaluated during September.

The Conference takes place each February, with the programme being developed between June and October the previous year. The programme comprises a combination of invited contributors and a selection from the proposals received. The Advisory Board invites proposals for workshops, panels, interviews, presentations, debates and lightning talks on the subject of international scholarly communications.

Conference organiser Mark Carden said: ‘We particularly encourage proposals from librarians, researchers, editors and funders, and from people based outside the UK. We are also strong supporters of diversity and inclusion, and actively welcome proposals from under-represented demographics.'

Proposers are invited to provide an abstract (50 to 100 words) and a fuller description (up to 150 words) by 31 August. Find more guidance and a downloadable application form at
