    Last call for Early Bird bookings for the ALPSP Annual Conference


    The ALPSP Conference and Awards will take place at the Beaumont Estate in Old Windsor, UK from 12-14 September later this year. Our Keynote Speaker for this year will be:

    Chris Jackson, Professor of Basin Analysis, Imperial College London

    Chris Jackson is an eminent geologist at Imperial College London. He has published around 150 academic papers and, yet, despite this, he describes his 'awakening' to some of the issues related to scholarly publishing as 'embarrassingly recent'. Chris will speak about his experience as a researcher, starting a preprint server and striving to make content more open.


    Early bird rates end on Thursday 31 May, so make sure you register now to take advantage.  To book and find out more visit our dedicated ALPSP conference website
