About Scholarly Social

Scholarly Social is an open and collaborative space to share ideas and make connections. We host social gatherings where you can share top tips and network with people involved in scholarly communication. You don’t represent your organisation, just your individual self, and everyone connected to scholarly communication is welcome, including publishers, librarians, researchers, consultants, intermediaries, and students.

If you can't make this one, join the Scholarly Social LinkedIn group to be informed of future events, and if you have any questions you can find the organisers Bernie and Ginny on Twitter.

About London Open Drinks

London Open Drinks is a (very!) informal get together for anyone with professional or personal interests in Open Access, Open Data, Open Knowledge, and Open Anything Else. Previous events have attracted around 30 people, most of whom work in and around the sciences (including researchers, publishers, funders, journalists). We want to actively encourage interaction between interested parties who might not otherwise come into contact.

For information please visit our website, and follow us on Twitter for more details as the night approaches.
