Doctoral Forum

The doctoral forum of the European Conference on Information Literacy 2018 will have a novel concept with a focus in scientific publishing. We want to extend the invitation to all doctoral candidates attending the conference. In other words, a participant does not have to have submitted a paper to the doctoral forum to participate.

The doctoral forum will be held on the final day of the conference (Thursday 27th of September). The schedule has not yet been planned in detail, but we are happy to inform you that Professor Peter Bath (University of Sheffield, UK) and Dr Emma Coonan (Anglia Ruskin University, UK) have agreed to speak in the doctoral forum. In addition, Professor Karen E. Fisher (University of Washington, US) as well as other scholars will act as mentors in the forum.

We have asked scholars to share their experiences on scientific publishing as researchers, reviewers, and editors. The doctoral candidates will have an active role in the forum but will not be required to prepare full presentations or papers.

At this point, we would ask those doctoral candidates interested in participating to contact the organising committee. This way we can consider this in the general schedule.

Note that the early bird registration of ECIL conference will close on the 22th of June.
