SCI 2019 highlights

The 2019 Scholarly Communication Institute was held from October 13 to October 17, and this year’s theme was “Equity in Scholarly Communication”.

Five teams convened to work on projects they proposed in the spring, and to work across teams to better understand the structural and situational issues that present challenges to a more equitable scholarly communication and publishing ecosystem. During the course of the institute they explored ideas, developed initiatives, and launched projects aimed at promoting positive change.

Once the five days of the Institute, we collected highlights in the blog post below – featuring tweets, photos, links, and other information that reflect what was going on at the Institute.

You can join in the conversation too. Each year many SCI participants have been active on Twitter during the program, using the #TriangleSCI hashtag. Follow along there or in this list gathering tweets from the SCI 2019 cohort, send us questions, give us your suggestions, and engage with us as we further develop and implement ideas and projects.

If you’re interested in participating in person in SCI 2020, look for the next theme and request for proposals on this site in January. We’re happy to announce that we’ve received funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to continue TriangleSCI for three more years. We’re grateful to the Mellon Foundation for their ongoing support of this program, and look forward to 90+ more people being able to participate in the next 3 years!
