Why do we need FSCI 2020?

This institute focuses on teaching researchers, librarians and scholars innovative ways to publish reproducible research. The theme this year is on the “FAIR” Data Principles highlighting the importance of managing and publishing research data that is Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reproducible. This is a robust community that draws scholars from all over the world including countries that are historically underrepresented in scholarly communication. FSCI is of interest to STEM researchers and beyond because the central theme of the conference is to teach people the most up-to-date ways to manage and communicate data and scholarship. This institute will educate our scholars on methods to advance science beyond the bench and take part in the transformation of how we communicate science. 

Who is FSCI?

FSCI 2020 is co-hosted by the UCLA Library and FORCE11 – FORCE11 is a community of scholars, librarians, archivists, publishers and research funders that arose organically to study and facilitate new developments in knowledge creation and communication. Membership is open to all who share this interest. Join Today.
