Springer Nature is hosting a roundtable at the pre-conference workshop for FORCE2018 in Montreal on 10 October, to discuss metrics for open access books.

The roundtable is open to any attendees of the FORCE2018 conference who are book authors and librarians - preferably with open access experience. We have also invited a Canadian-based publisher and a metrics expert. Agata Morka, Senior Manager for open access books, will be chairing the roundtable discussion, which will look at:

  • Why does measurement matter?
  • How are OA book authors measuring the impact of their work?
  • What are the main challenges in getting access to information on OA book metrics?
  • How and why should publishers encourage increased engagement with OA book metrics?

Please note that registration has now ended. 

Date: 3.30pm - 5pm on Wednesday 10 October 2018

NEW location: Vivaldi room, Marriott Delta Hotel, 475 President-Kennedy Avenue, Montreal H3A 1J7, Canada
