The FORCE11 Scholarly Communication Institute (FSCI - https://www.force11.org/fsci) had its third session in August 2019. FSCI emerged from a belief that it was no longer enough to bring communities together to discuss and advance the cutting edge; we need to transfer knowledge, understanding and purpose among the diverse communities that will implement the future of scholarly communications. The first two years of FSCI ran at University of California, San Diego, and were vital to get the institute up and running. The 2019 edition was run at a new location and with a new collaborative partner, the library of the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). As we look ahead to year four, FSCI collaborators are working to clarify and expand the purpose and effectiveness of the institute. This talk will feature Nicky Agate (University of Columbia), Martin Brennan (UCLA), and Osman Aldirdiri (University of Khartoum). We will give an overview of the brief-but-exciting history of FSCI, and discuss some of the issues that have arisen and which are shaping our future direction. Attendees are encouraged to share their own hopes for FSCI and will learn how they can become more active partners in its development.
