Now in its 10th anniversary year, the Conference on Open Access Scholarly Publishing (COASP) is a major annual scholarly publishing conference that brings the open access community together to discuss new developments and innovations in scholarly publishing, and unite in our shared goal to enable research around the world to be openly accessible.

As in previous years, the COASP Program Committee have set aside sessions within the conference program to provide opportunities for presenting projects, ideas or initiatives relating to open access publishing. This year, organisations and individuals are invited to submit a proposal to us for ‘Show & Tell’ presentations. These are 10 minute talks showcasing new projects, ideas or initiatives.

All proposals should be submitted by May 25th 2018 at the latest to There are no strict requirements of what proposals need to include; an abstract-length summary of what you would like to present will be sufficient.

Please note that while we will be able to cover the registration costs for the authors of successful proposals, we are not able to cover any of the travel expenses that may be incurred in attending the conference.

If you aren’t selected for a Show and Tell then there may be an opportunity for you to present a brief Lightning Talk and poster on your topic at the conference.

Recordings, slides and posters from previous conferences can be found on our website here. This call for contributions announcement can be found on our website here.

Registration is now open for our free June Webinar: “TERMS revisited: developing the combination of electronic resource management with openaccess workflows update”, presented by Jill Emery, Collection Development and Management Librarian at Portland State University and Peter McCracken, Electronic Resources Librarian at Cornell.

The Webinar will be held on the 20th June, and will provide an overview of the current work undertaken to re-write the techniques for electronic resource management with the incorporation of open access workflow management. This overview will provide insight into the key areas under exploration and outline the feedback compiled from the two
popular interactive sessions held at the UKSG Annual Conference. There will be time for Q&A afterwards.

Registration is open to members and non-members alike and all registrants will be given a link to the recording after the event. If you have any particular accessibility requirements, please email
