Springer Nature is hosting a roundtable at the pre-conference workshop for FORCE2018 in Montreal on 10 October, to discuss metrics for open access books.  The registration page is here:           https://www.springernature.com/gp/open-research/journals-books/books/force2018

The roundtable is open to any attendees of the FORCE2018 conference who are book authors and librarians - preferably with open access experience. We have also invited a Canadian-based publisher and a metrics expert. Agata Morka, Senior Manager for open access books, will be chairing the roundtable discussion, which will look at:

-Why does measurement matter?
-How are OA book authors measuring the impact of their work?
-What are the main challenges in getting access to information on OA book metrics?
-How and why should publishers encourage increased engagement with OA book metrics?

Please note that this workshop will be held at Hôtel Delta Montréal's Vivaldi Room
