join SocArXiv at UMD this fall

SocArXiv, the open-access repository for your preprints and working papers, is having its first meeting this fall. Join us October 26-27 at the University of Maryland for O3S: Open Scholarship for the Social Sciences, a symposium that will bring together advocates, practitioners, and researchers on open scholarship in the social sciences and help plan the future of SocArXiv. From the call for papers:

The symposium will (a) highlight research that uses the tools and methods of open scholarship; (b) bring together researchers who work on problems of open access, publishing, and open scholarship; and (c) facilitate exchange of ideas on the development of SocArXiv.

The symposium will feature two keynote speakers: Tressie McMillan Cottom, sociology professor at Virginia Commonwealth University; and Jeffrey Spies, co-founder and chief technology officer at the Center for Open Science. Participants will also participate in panels and a workshop session on the future challenges and next steps for SocArXiv.

The O3S Symposium will take place during Open Access Week, a global event raising awareness about the benefits of open access and inspiring wider participation in making open access a new norm in scholarship and research.

We invite social science papers or presentations related to the following themes:

Research on any topic that includes open scholarship components. This may entail a demonstration case showing how to do an open scholarship project, providing data and code for results, working with collaborators, or other examples of open scholarship in practice.

Research about open scholarship itself. This may include mechanisms for making data and code public, workflow processes, publication considerations, citation metrics, or the tools and methods of open scholarship.

Research about replication and transparency. This includes both replication studies and research about replication and reproducibility issues.

You can find the full call for papers here; some travel funding is available. For more info on SocArXiv, see this handy FAQ, or shoot me an email.
