From the emergence of digital publication to the rise of open access, scholarly communications have undergone deep and far-reaching change in the last 30 years. The Canadian Symposium of Scholarly Journals is a community event that aims to gather journal team members from across Canada to share their experiences and challenges in the current, fast-changing environment. The goal will be to foster empowerment in the Canadian journal community through structured discussions addressing shared issues and geared toward possible action. The afternoon will follow Coalition Publica’s principles and practices for bilingual meetings (a pragmatic and flexible approach to French-English communications) and include two parts.

The first part will be dedicated to members of scholarly journal teams and academic librarians who work with them. It will take the form of active and horizontal participation in discussions on key themes such as: editorial work recognition, technological changes brought by advances in machine learning and multimodal publishing, and the importance of national and regional journals in an increasingly globalized research environment.

The second part will aim to amplify the ideas and proposals that emerged from these discussions. This will involve a plenary session gathering other stakeholders in scholarly publishing in Canada such as granting agencies as well as university and library administrators. The symposium will end with a reception to continue the discussions over refreshments!

Schedule :
1: 30 pm - 4 pm : Discussion session
4 pm - 5 pm : Capstone plenary
5 pm - 7 pm : Reception
