Open Access week 2017 : Open in order to........

As part of international Open Access week activities, AOASG is especially pleased to have SPARC Executive Director Heather Joseph as our special guest presenter for this month's webinar.

Heather is currently leading charge to get the issue of Open Access through the US Congress via the bipartisan Fair Access to Science and Technology Research Act. She is a world leader on the issues surrounding open access and an exceptionally engaging speaker.

The theme of Open Access Week 2017 is a question: "Open in order to..... " is an invitation to answer the question of what concrete benefits can be realized by making scholarly outputs openly available. It amis to serve as a prompt to move beyond talking about openness in itself and focus on what openness enables—in an individual discipline, at a particular institution, or in a specific context; then to take action to realize these benefits.
