The papers from OSI2017 will be published by Mason Press by mid-September and re-posted in this space. Stay tuned. These papers will form the basis for ongoing conversations in OSI about focus, strategies and priorities. Two sets of papers were produced this year—one addressing the OSI2017 workgroup challenges, and another addressing stakeholder-specific ideas and concerns. The objective of these papers, unlike OSI2016 papers, was not to detail the full landscape of perspectives, but to create a first draft of a roadmap for moving forward as a broad stakeholder community.
