ABOUT THE INSTITUTE
Scientific and Scholarly Communication is in the middle of a system-wide disruption. These changes have affected every aspect of research, from its practice, to its administration, to its use. There are new forms of publication, new standards and expectations, new ways of measuring and demonstrating success, new dangers and pitfalls. The Force11 Scholarly Communication Institute at UCLA (FSCI) is a summer school that helps people learn how to navigate this new world. Its instructors include leading practitioners from the world of research, libraries, publishing, and research administration. Its courses range from basic orientations through classes in the most advanced topics. Its goal is to provide a friendly, community-based way of learning about and keeping up to date on the latest trends, technologies, and opportunities that are transforming the way science and scholarship is done.
FSCI is organized by FORCE11 (The Future of Research Communication and eScholarship) in collaboration with the UCLA Library. FORCE11 is a community of scholars, librarians, archivists, publishers and research funders that arose organically to study and facilitate new developments in knowledge creation and communication. Membership is open to all who share this interest!
