After 30 minutes of announcements, logistics, and orientation, we will turn to a review of the history, purpose and ethos of FSCI for the remaining 90 minutes.
Ten years ago the meetings that led to the formation of FORCE11 were occurring. Five years ago a breakfast discussion among FORCE11 colleagues sparked what became the first FORCE11 Scholarly Communications Institute. Both of these initiatives grew out of an aspiration for radical change in scholarly communications. Sometimes it feels like nothing has changed, but we need to look back to understand how much has gradually shifted. Sometimes, it can feel like everything is moving too fast, but we need to look to shared values and constants that have sustained us through these shifts. As we open the fifth instance of the FORCE11 Scholarly Communications Institute, we will be in discussion with Phil Bourne and Anita de Waard who convened the first FORCE11 meetings, with Dan O’Donnell and Stephanie Hagstrom, who pulled together the first FSCI and as always, with leaders of the future in the audience.
We will be quizzing the audience for instant responses to these questions, as well! We will gently test your memory of what the state of scholarly communications was, and be part of a crowd-sourced prediction of what it could be as we open the fifth FSCI. What were we hoping for five and ten years ago? What have we helped to change, and what have we not? What changed, even though we didn’t expect it?
