Thanks again to everybody who submitted proposals to participate in the 2017 Scholarly Communication Institute! This year’s theme stimulated some wonderful ideas and many excellent proposals, and it was very difficult for the SCI advisory board to narrow down the pool to the small number of teams we are able invite to participate in November.
All of the invited teams have now confirmed their participation, so we’re pleased to announce who they are and the titles of their projects. Each title links to further information about the project and participants:
