Or perhaps to be a little more specific - “Maximizing Research Transparency”
Beyond Open Access: Maximizing Research Transparency
NV: coping in his emails:
I’d also like to suggest that based on the article I shared we ask Bruce Alberts to be a keynote speaker. Bruce Alberts et al. Self-correction in science at work. Science 26 June 2015: 348 (6242), 1420-1422. [DOI:10.1126/science.aab3847]

As an OA publisher and someone working in or around this space for 15 years, can I suggest
As I go to conferences and exhibitions I'm taken by the absolute passion in those attending in person and on Twitter to open up research and make it collaborative. But I don't necessarily see that from the majority of academics I talk to.
What can we achieve by focusing on maximising the openness of research? What arguments do we need to make and at what level?
Many thanks, Bryan

I would be happy with Maximizing Research Openness or something like that.

In any case, happy with many of the suggestions here!

What I was trying to get to with the word “transparency” was supporting the the whole notion of reproducibility, extensibility and re-use *on a spectrum* as in the Albers article. Then you open the door to a nuanced conversation and make it very hard for people not to at least take the first step.

"Beyond Open Access: Maximizing Research Transparency"
Submission Reference ID (SID): 356
1) How to open up your research or What does open research actually means?
2) Communicating research for non-scholars: what does it take?
Submission Reference ID (SID): 357
I feel that we're already beyond the PDF and open-data, but we still don't know where we all want to go. Using "towards" and giving a direction would be really nice to create a common characteristic for the group. We could even discuss what "open research" would mean and what parts should/could be open or not.

Much of the resistance to being more open and transparent about research and its outputs is due to mis-alignment of this with career advancement structures. How do we create a system and a culture that aligns maximum openness, transparency, and exploration of all possible impact pathways, with reward systems (i.e., through career progression). This is part of the larger paradigm of public and equal access to knowledge, and research institutes as a public body.

This session will present efforts underway in the Commons working group looking to define common practices, principles, standards and technologies that should govern the communication of and access to any scholarly object: narrative, code, data, etc.

The ability to add annotations to any web page turns any web document into a collaborative workspace. This capability was originally envisioned as part of the web, but is only now becoming a reality. New platforms and tools are now available; the technology has the potential to impact many of the issues facing scholarly communication by providing a connective layer of knowledge on top of research objects. We'd like to organize a session around the issues of web-based, open annotation that includes tools, use cases and challenges for dealing with annotation at scale.

**Panel suggestion: Beyond the PDF, Beyond the Book-Journal BInary. This session explore the developments in the scholarly practice that have ventured beyond the traditional binary (e.g. University of Minnesota Press projects Forerunners, and Manifold, USC's Annenberg Press recent publications), consider new formats for scholarship, and how these have fared, the challenges therein, how these practices compare across the disciplines, and the challenges to be addressed across the scholarly communications ecosystem (e.g. tenure and promotion committees, library acquisitions, etc.)
**Panel suggestion: Visual practices in scholarship. This session discusses the current state of nontextual scholarship across the disciplines, from JOVE (Journal of Visual Experiments) to the humanities and visual arts. A recent policy recommendation from the College Art Association (scholarly society for history and criticism of art and visual culture) just announced that they now recommend a Fair Use approach for any publication discussing a work of art. The implications for this big, both for traditional print publishing but for the promise of digital publications as copyright and permission issues have kept the majority of this content offline.
- some type of Beyond the PDF hackathon could yield some interesting results, provided attendees are professionally diverse enough to make this useful. But it would very exciting to actually work at producing some prototype ideas for new formats. A recent event I attended was a hackathon concurrent with ALA (American Library Association) in June. http://codexhackathon.com/ - this event was oriented more towards book readers rather than researchers but you can get the idea. I'm glad to say more about this and provide a more defined concept if it's of interest.
**general programming note:
Has the meeting grown in terms of attendance and diversity of disciplines that it's worthwhile to consider concurrent sessions for portions of the meeting? (I say this with hesitation as I see great value in all participants engaging in the same discussions. However the 2015 had enough moments of talks that felt outside of the focus of the meeting proper despite being of great interest to a good number of the participants. A possible solution would have been concurrent sessions to take advantage of the critical mass of folks who engage with a particular the issue that isn't entirely on topic.) Just something to think about if the goal is to grow this across disciplines.

As follow-up to our project '101 Innovations in Scholarly Communication', which won best poster award at Force2015 in Oxford, we propose a presentation of the results of our worldwide survey on changing research workflows (see http://101innovations.wordpress.com). With this survey, that currently has almost 2500 responses and will be running until February 2016, we provide empirical underpinning of the changing scholarly communication landscape. The survey also enables us to assess the relative importance of various driving forces (efficiency, openness and transparency/reproducibility) behind changes in scholarly communication for researchers in different disciplines, career stages and countries.
We are open to several formats, including an interactive workshop in which participants can come up with their own hypotheses which will be tested right there and then using the survey data.

2. Find a balance between conceptual / abstract / community building sessions, and the presentation of projects that have results with implications for moving scholarly communications forward. In the past, Beyond the PDF was much more focused on the latter - lately it feels like the Force 11 has moved too far in the direction of the former.

- Whither diversity in scholcomm? How can we amplify the voices and needs of scholars of color, women, the differently-abled, and other participants in the scholcomm conversation who are routinely overlooked? What effects will that have on how we envision the future(s) of scholarly communication?
- Building on Nic's idea of interrelated scholarly products, I think there's a need for a discussion of such interrelated products in the digital humanities, in particular.
