Open Access Week

Open Access: Learn.  Share.  Grow.  

Open Access (OA) is an important global trend where researchers choose to provide free
online access to their publications.  To celebrate Open Access Week all research-active
staff and students are invited to presentations by academic colleagues Simon Chapman,
Martijn de Sterke, Alex Holcombe, Matt Todd and Goetz Richter who are harnessing the
power of OA to extend their research influence and grow their citation rates.  Learn
about the benefits of OA for scholarly collaboration; the open science movement; the
important of OA for disciplines striving for recognition; and combining social media and
OA to increase exposure.  

· Date: Friday 28 October, 2011 

· Time: 2:00 - 4:00 PM 

· Venue: Victoria Park Room Level 5, Fisher Library
