The nature of scholarship is changing, as are the ways in which you can engage with your research community and beyond. As part of Otago’s Open Access Week events, these sessions will consist of a series of quick fire topics on the theme of ‘being open.’ Those who come along can chose topics they’re interested in, including but not limited to:
- creative commons
- open educational resources (OERs)
- hosting your own journal
- data management (e.g. Figshare)
- ORCID unique researcher identifiers
- Otago University Research Archive (OUR Archive, our institutional research repository), and
- Academic Networking sites (e.g. ResearchGate, Academia.edu), etc.
The quick-fire topics will serve as an invitation to attendees to engage in an open discussion where they can ask questions, share experiences or even get hands-on support. You don’t know a thing about ORCID but you know you want one? Do you apply creative commons licences to your work and want to share your experiences? These sessions will be of use to all students/academics/researchers keen to engage in conversations around open access, the pros and cons and making the most of the various tools available.

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!
When: 1 – 2pm Monday 19 October 2015
Where: Central Library Conference Room 3 (1st floor East end, see floorplan)
