As part of international Open Access Week, the University of Kent is inviting some key players in the sector to discuss the current state of play. In the sixteen months since Dame Janet Finch published her report on Open Access (OA), policy has moved on quickly: the Government accepted the findings of the Report, and the Research Councils (RCUK) have mandated OA publishing.
This event will be a good opportunity to take stock. The programme includes speakers from HEFCE, RCUK, the Open Library for Humanities and the Research Information Network, as well as editors of OA journals. Not only will there be a chance to hear from these speakers, but to meet others who are finding their way in the new, post-Finch environment.
The event is aimed primarily at academics and academic support staff but all are welcome to attend, both from the University of Kent and elsewhere.
Full presentation titles and details will be updated on this page in due course.
The event is free and refreshments will be provided. All are welcome but places are limited and available on a first come, first served basis.
