Have the aims of Open Access been 'co-opted' by other agendas?
Are top-down policies necessary for effective Open Access?
Is it better to convince the indifferent from the ground-up, telling them about the benefits of sharing research and creating incentives?
These are some of the questions we'll be asking in a debate to mark International Open Access Week 2016. The Office of Scholarly Communication and Cambridge University Press invite you to join us and a panel of researchers and publishers to discuss the ideology, activism, politics and practice of the Open Access movement. The panel will be moderated by Dr Danny Kingsley, Head of Scholarly Communication at the University of Cambridge.
We invite you to submit your questions to the panel in advance - please share your thoughts with us via Twitter: @CamOpenAccess #OAWeekCam
13:00-14:30 Wednesday 26 October 2016, Darwin Room, Pitt Building, University of Cambridge, Trumpington Street, Cambridge CB2 1RP.
Tea and coffee provided.
In addition to the live audience, the session will be streamed; details of the web event will appear on the Office of Scholarly Communication website, along with news of our other events for Open Access Week - a series of blog posts and the launch of the newly-upgraded repository, Apollo.
