Why are governments, funders and institutions around the world mandating or encouraging Open Access? What does it mean for my discipline? My department? Me, as an individual researcher or teacher?
Our opening event for OA Week offers an introduction to OA, its demonstrable benefits to the scholarly pursuit and the challenges it presents. This session will provide a broad overview of current developments in OA and examine what the future might hold.
We’ll also be launching a survey of Otago staff, which asks about practices in and attitudes towards OA publishing.
Come along and share your experiences or bring your questions.
As an added bonus there will be open access baking. You’ll have to come find out what that is!
