ALPSP 2023 - we're ready and raring to go!

A night time view over Salford Quays in Manchester

This week sees the return of the annual ALPSP conference - a time that brings the scholarly community together. This year is the first time that this is being done both in-person and virtually.

The programme is packed with great speakers and fun social events. Some of the key issues to be discussed include open science, books, small societies, equitable OA models, researcher behaviour, diversity in commissioning, an Industry Leaders 'Question Time', and more.

Here are our top 5 sessions and events from the conference programme that we are super excited for at ALPSP 2023:
