This one-day workshop is a must for anyone involved in managing the flow of scientific and scholarly communication. The Open Science movement has the potential to dramatically change that flow as well as the roles of all involved if the key emerging issues can be resolved. Open government, open data, and open access are all necessary but insufficient movements to make open science a reality. This workshop will explore the technical, financial, political, and social/cultural forces that are driving the movement; the key issues that may impact your organization – issues such as creator/author rights, attribution, information sharing and re-use, machine access and interoperability, preservation of the record of science, etc.; and the policies and tools that are being created to make open science a reality. Mark your calendar now to reserve the date. Registration will open September 6, 2013, to accommodate those who need to pay before the new fiscal year begins. Seating is limited so register early!
