The different panels address specific scholarly communication topics:

  • innovative governance models in social sciences and humanities (SSH),
  • business models for open access books,
  • multilingualism and bibliodiversity in SSH,
  • opportunities and challenges of FAIRification of SSH data,
  • the future of scholarly writing, and

10:0011:30 CET Innovative models of governance

Panelists: Lionel Maurel (INSHS, CNRS), Francesca Musiani (The Center for Internet and Society, CNRS), Jane Winters (University of London)

12:0013:30 CET Innovative Business Models for OA books

12:0013:30 CET Innovative models of bibliodiversity in scholarly publications

The panel will focus on the innovative models related to multilingualism and bibliodiversity in SSH. SSH specific needs regarding scholarly communication in native languages need to be addressed: in those disciplines where language and concepts are very often not only means of communication but objects of research itself, the use of mother tongue is indispensable for in-depth understanding, and knowledge co-creation and sharing.

Coordinator: Delfim Leão (University of Coimbra)

Panelists: Margo Bargheer (University of Göttingen), Petar Jandrić (University of Zagreb), Sayri Karp (Guadalajara University)

15:0016:30 CET Innovative approach to SSH FAIR data: publications as data

The panel will provide a platform to discuss the opportunities and challenges that come with applying the FAIR data principles in SSH with a particular focus on understanding publications as research data. Innovative, community-driven solutions to FAIRification of SSH data will be presented and discussed.

Coordinators: Arnaud Gingold (OpenEdition), Elena Giglia (University of Turin), Karla Avanço (OpenEdition)

Panelists: Jennifer Edmond (Trinity College Dublin / DARIAH), Emilie Paquin (Érudit), Joachim Schöpfel (University of Lille)

Friday, 26 February 2021

10:0011:30 CET Future of scholarly writing in SSH

The coordinators and panelists will explore the current writing practices in SSH and the researchers’ needs regarding the publishing technologies and both ongoing and upcoming transformations of the scholarly communication. The aim of the panel is to strive for a better understanding of the challenges and emerging practices of scholarly writing through discussion of innovative case studies and highlights of interviews with different stakeholders.

Coordinators: Maciej Maryl (IBL PAN), Marta Błaszczyńska (IBL PAN)

Panelists: Janneke Adema (Coventry University), Frédéric Clavert (C2DH, University of Luxembourg), Ulrike Wuttke (University of Applied Sciences Potsdam)

12:0013:30 CET Quality assessment of SSH research: innovations and challenges

The panel will focus on the quality assessment of novel research and innovative publications in the SSH research. It will seek to inform future innovation for peer reviewing emerging scholarly communications through the lense of use cases and findings of the interviews conducted with various stakeholders.

Coordinator: Erzsébet Tóth-Czifra (DARIAH)

Panelists: Anne Baillot (Le Mans Université), Emanuel Kulczycki (ENRESSH), Laurent Romary (Inria)
