O3S: Open Scholarship for the Social Sciences
October 18-19, 2018
University of Maryland, College Park

SocArXiv will host the second O3S: Open Scholarship for the Social Sciences symposium October 18-19, 2018 at University of Maryland, College Park. O3S (a) highlights research that uses the tools and methods of open scholarship; (b) brings together researchers who work on problems of open access, publishing, and open scholarship; and (c) facilitates exchange of ideas on the development of SocArXiv.

The symposium will feature two keynote speakers: Elizabeth Popp Berman, associate professor of Sociology at University at Albany, SUNY; and April Hathcock, Scholarly Communications Librarian at New York University. We will also have a Q & A on open science with Arthur Lupia, the head of the Directorate for Social, Behavioral, and Economic Sciences; and a showing of the documentary Paywall: The Business of Scholarship. Registration is now open
