Events & Initiatives


ICSTI strives to offer a program of virtual and in-person events as well as opportunities to collaborate on projects of interest to both ICSTI members and the scholarly communications stakeholders they serve. ICSTI’s events programming is driven primarily by our two committees, the Information Trends and Opportunities Committee (ITOC) and the Technical Activities Coordinating Committee (TACC).

ICSTI typically offers one major annual conference co-located with another conference of interest to our members. The annual conference entails workshops or presentations arranged by ITOC & TACC open to ICSTI members as well as attendees of the co-located conference, along with ICSTI-members’-only sessions devoted to member-to-member presentations, ICSTI business, and other projects.

ICSTI also offer webinars, a weekly newsletter summarizing scholarly communications news topics, and opportunities to participate in research and projects designed to explore and innovate on the leading-edge of information science and technology.
