The FORCE11 Communications and Marketing Committee is a new group (in 2018) brought together to help raise the profile of the FORCE11 organisation. We are marketing and PR professionals working in scholarly communication across sectors, and we are FORCE11 community members in research, technology, publishing, and advocacy. We work in close collaboration – on the committee and beyond – to stay connected to the interests of the worldwide community. Our goals at the moment are to establish a strong system for communicating about FORCE11, the annual conference and FSCI, before offering support to the FORCE11 working groups. We're really looking forward to working for FORCE11 and the future of research communication. Comments and questions are always welcome.
