The 1st forum hosted by Polytechnique Montreal welcomed delegates remotely and in person from 32 countries and 30 scientific disciplines. We addressed the mechanics and ethics of publishing research, authorship, reporting data, journal metrics, and writing. The second edition of this event will strengthen international cooperation globally but also within the diverse disciplines. Our goal is to assemble scholars to encourage an open dialogue between the decision makers, coworkers, and students. Since the UN declared 2022-2032 the decade of indigenous languages, the program will address, among other things:

  • Publishing processes
    • How does English writing impact editors’ perception of quality?
    • Open access and publication costs
    • Arbitrary and deficient reviews
  • Language
    • Indigenous languages in science
    • Disruptive linguistic norms in science
    • Multilingual Networking
  • Ethics
    • Orphan contributions, author attribution and negotiation
    • Biopiracy: Natural and social heritage exploitation by foreign organizations
    • Impact of COVID-19 on the publication process
    • Equity, diversity, and inclusion
      • Inequitable funding availability and its impact on innovation
      • Country affiliation influence on citations
      • Tenure as an impediment for productivity
