***Information on OIS Research Conference 2021 will be updated regularly***
After postponing the OIS Research Conference 2020 due to the COVID-19-virus outbreak, we are happy to announce the new date for the OIS Research Conference 2021 at CERN IdeaSquare in Geneva, Switzerland, on April 7-9, 2021. While we plan for having a physical meeting, time will tell us to what extent virtual elements will be part of the event.
The organizing committee of the OIS Research Conference 2021 at CERN IdeaSquare invites you to join the discussion about the role and value of open and collaborative approaches to generating and disseminating scientific research by submitting an abstract of 250-500 words on your empirical or conceptual work to one of the following conference tracks:
Track 1: Open and collaborative approaches along the entire scientific research process and their effects. Possible topics include but are not limited to:
Track 2: Ecosystems and organizational designs facilitating open and collaborative research approaches. Possible topics include but are not limited to:
Track 3: Micro-foundations of open and collaborative research approaches. Possible topics include but are not limited to:
Please note that
Researching OIS includes investigating whether, how, and under which conditions applying open and collaborative practices along one or more stages of the scientific research process influences novelty, efficiency and/or impact of scientific research, taking a balanced view that recognizes important contingency factors on the individual, organizational and ecosystem-level.
To submit your abstract, please click here or use the following link: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=oisconference2021
Submission deadline is January 29, 2021. Submitted abstracts will be reviewed by the organizing committee and – given their fit – assigned a presentation slot at the conference. Information on abstract acceptance and conference registration will be provided by February 12, 2021.
