Examining open access, research impact, and public engagement: attend the seminars
This Friday (9 May) sees the first of a series of seminars on open access, examining policy issues, research impact, and public engagement, and presenting the findings from our 2014 Open Access and Society Surveys.
Events in London (19 May) and Brussels (17 June) will review progress on the open access “journey” so far and are supported by the Academy of Social Sciences (AcSS) and the Association for Learned and Professional Society Publishers (ALPSP).
Alongside addressing policies in the U.K. and Europe, both seminars will consider the twin themes of research impact and public engagement in an open-access context, with the Brussels event in particular taking the debate out into the wider European arena. Speakers will be from a wide variety of organizations, including HEFCE, the European Commission, Society for Research into Higher Education, National Library of Sweden, CrossRef, and Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG), amongst many others.
Promising to be an unmissable event for any society or academic editor engaging with open-access publishing, the events in London and Brussels are free to attend. Read the full agenda for the day and register to attend London or Brussels now.
