Join OSI

We’re always on the lookout for leaders in academia, research, publishing, philanthropy, government, business, and other sectors who want to help shape the future of scholarly communication. If you’re interested, let us know (email the OSI program director by clicking below). OSI can only accept limited numbers of participants from each stakeholder group; we’d especially like to hear from you if you’re from the global south, an active researcher, or a government policy official.

If you have an idea for a meeting, would like to host one, would like to plug OSI into your existing meeting, or other variations on this theme, please email the OSI program director (click on the button below).
