On behalf of the FSCI 2019 steering committee, I'm pleased to share the 
following now-official news!

FORCE11 is pleased to announce the third annual FORCE11 Scholarly 
Communication Institute (FSCI) will take place at UCLA from August 5 to 
9, 2019. With this move, FORCE11 begins a long-term collaboration with 
the UCLA Library to plan and present FSCI, and improve understanding and 
engagement with the fast-changing world of research communication on 
campuses everywhere.

FSCI started in 2017 as a partnership between FORCE11 and the University 
of California at San Diego. Now setting down roots in Los Angeles, 
California, FSCI is a week-long summer school in open research for 
researchers, librarians, publishers, university administrators, funders, 
students and post-docs that incorporates intensive coursework, seminars, 
group activities, lectures and hands-on training. Participants learn 
from leading experts, have the chance to discuss the latest trends and 
to gain expertise in new technologies. FSCI is transdisciplinary and 
relevant across the sciences, social sciences and humanities.

"Working together with the academic community to explore frontiers in 
research communications is key to changing practices," said Ginny Steel, 
UCLA Norman and Armena Powell University Librarian. "The UCLA Library 
has been actively involved in efforts to enhance and expand scholarly 
discourse through openness, and the summer institute will be a valuable 
forum for us to consider the opportunities and challenges in concert 
with the international research community. We look forward to welcoming 
everyone in August."

FSCI courses explore changing practice in data-sharing, authorship, peer 
review, research assessment, publishing and more. There are courses for 
those who know very little about current trends and technologies and 
courses for those ready to pursue advanced topics. FSCI covers scholarly 
communication from a variety of disciplinary, regional and international 

"We're so pleased to name the UCLA Library as our partner for FSCI," 
added Daniel O'Donnell, Chair of the FORCE11 Board of Directors and 
Professor of English at the University of Lethbridge in Alberta, Canada. 
"FSCI is a vibrant, inclusive and accessible forum for individuals from 
across sectors to apply themselves to learn about emerging topics and 
take them back to their home institutions. The librarian scholars at the 
UCLA Library are recognised leaders in improving research communication, 
and together with the wider academic community of UCLA will enrich the 
FSCI program in fantastic ways."

The 5-day FSCI will take place at UCLA August 5 through 9, 2019. Course 
information and registration will be available in spring. To be kept 
up-to-date on details as they emerge, sign up to receive email updates,
