Enabling Science and Innovation
The future of scientific and technical information is changing. New technologies are continuously reshaping the way information is processed, transferred, and used. ICSTI facilitates the exchange of experience, expertise, and understanding among stakeholders in the scholarly communications process to create opportunities for organizational networking and collaboration across communities.
Launch of ICSTI Connections
Last month, ICSTI launched a new event series, ICSTI Connections, which offers our members an informal discussion forum for sharing experience and expertise on key topics in STI. ICSTI members propose Connections topics and provide a volunteer moderator, who makes a short presentation and then guides the conversation that follows.
ICSTI and FORCE11, a “community of scholars, librarians, archivists, publishers and research funders” that aims “to bring about a change in modern scholarly communications through the effective use of information technology,” have been exploring a potential partnership and collaboration opportunities since 2019.
ICSTI General Assembly 2021
ICSTI held our annual General Assembly virtually for a second time this year, offering both a closed business meeting session and an open Members’ Fair session featuring presentations on Open Data and Open Science topics from five ICSTI members.
