Open Access Week at The OU

Join us on October 23rd for a day of Open Access training and discussions, in celebration of International Open Access Week.

Perhaps you want to learn a bit more about Open Access Publishing, or the REF Open Access Policy. Chris Biggs from the Library Support Team will be on hand to give an overview of the Open Access landscape in his training session Getting to grips with Open Access Publishing from 10.30 – 12.00. You can sign up to join this training session via My Learning Centre.

Stick around for our lunchtime seminar (12.30 – 1.30pm) to hear Dr Muriel Swijghuisen Reigersberg from Research, Enterprise and Scholarship (RES) present on the topic of open knowledge distribution and how this may (or may not) provide opportunities to enhance the capacity of the Global South and other areas to participate in the production, sharing and consumption of new knowledge.  As a backdrop to this discussion, she will refer to her involvement with the Curtin Open Knowledge Initiative (COKI) as well as her own research writing and publishing practices within the field of ethnomusicology.

This will be followed by a presentation from David Jenkins of the Research Support Team of results from a project he has been coordinating, investigating the possibility of The OU signing up to an external responsible metrics statement, such as the San Francisco declaration on Research Assessment (DORA).

Sign up to attend this lunchtime seminar in person or online via EventBrite.

We look forward to seeing you there!
