Information Trends and Opportunities Committee (ITOC)

ITOC provides a unique forum for the scientific and technical information community to discuss strategic developments regarding Open Science and Open Innovation. We focus on conducting trend and horizon scanning for ICSTI members and conduct annual workshops that provide a broad overview of the most recent initiatives and developments in scientific and technical information, including topics like scholarly communication, open data, open science training, open scholarship in practice, and new formats of participation in science.
