The next COAR Annual Meeting and General Assembly will be held in Lima, Peru on April 23-24, 2020. The theme of the meeting this year will be Fostering Diversity in Scholarly Communication.
Diversity is an important characteristic of any healthy ecosystem, including scholarly communications. Diversity in services, platforms, funding mechanisms, and evaluation measures will allow the system to accommodate the needs of different research communities and support a variety of workflows, languages, scholarly outputs, and research topics.
This meeting will address how COAR can use the global repository network to support greater diversity, while also supporting the need for a system that supports international research. This meeting will seek to learn more about the current context in Latin America, and raise awareness of other approaches being developed around the world. The incentive structures and financial frameworks that act as barriers to advancing the vision of an inclusive, diverse, and sustainable system will also be examined.
A number of pre-conference workshops will take place in Cusco, Peru on April 20-21, 2020 which will involve parallel meetings including for national and international networks, next generation repositories, and a technical workshop focusing on DSpace software.
The meeting is being jointly organised by COAR, CONCYTEC, Universidad Peruana de Ciencias Aplicadas and in collaboration with LA Referencia.
More information about the meeting will be available in January 2020.
