About


Organized by Enformation

“Acces la literatura științifică” is an annual event organised by Enformation aiming at bringing together people from the Research and Education sectors to create new collaboration opportunities within the academic field. We encourage our speakers to share their successful experiences to show that resourcefulness comes from a well educated and guided passion.


The 6th Edition

The 6th edition of the conference provides students, PhDs, teachers, librarians and researchers with the ideal environment to share ideas, address various issues and find solutions. The three-day event includes plenary sessions and workshops designed to reveal research trends, new education methods and innovative solutions.


300+ Participants

More than 300 participants attended our event in 2017: representatives of 21 International Publishing Houses, professors and members of the Academia, but also researchers, librarians, students and business organizations from Romania and abroad interested in the topics we proposed during last year’s edition of “Acces la literatura științifică”.


 

Why is our event relevant


Research Day

We consider that research supports evolution! We all know that it’s a sector that needs a lot of support, both financial and human resources. During the conference, you will see how in Romania the limitations of the research activity are undermined by the passion of people who choose to dedicate their time and knowledge to in-depth study and new discoveries. We invite you to find out the newest information regarding space exploration, augmented reality, virtual reality, and the changes already present in the research climate.


Publishers` Day

International Publishers` Day is dedicated to all people interested in academic writing and publishing. With our well known partners` help, during practical workshops you have the chance to find out firsthand about the latest tools designed to ease the research process, the advanced functionalities available for librarians and the tips & trick of their online platforms.


Education Day

Education is the key to a better civilization! The plenary sessions will present topics like alternative methods in teaching and learning or the importance of resourcefulness. As well, the discussions will reveal how fundamental is to know your rights, but also your obligations as a citizen. Last but not least, you will have access to different perspectives on education, based on two dichotomies: public vs. private, national vs. international. You will feel inspired by our guests who are determined to find solutions where others see only problems.
