Event Description

The Open Access movement originated within the research community and, amongst other benefits, was intended to significantly improve access to research across the world. More recently there has been an emphasis on open access as a means of complying with institutional or funder policies, but this event plans to get back to basics by covering exactly what open access is (and isn’t), why it is a good thing and how open access (and open practices in general) can bring about new opportunities for collaboration and increase the impact of research.

The seminar, which will feature speakers from the University Library and all three faculties, will be of interest to academics and PGRS across disciplines and research support staff.

2pm – Refreshments 
2:30pm – A short talk about open access that doesn’t mention funder mandates or the next REF (much) 
Stephen Carlton, University of Liverpool Library
2:45pm – Open access in modern languages 
Academics from the Department of Modern Languages 
3:15pm – Open access initiatives and developments within Geographic Information Sciences 
Alex Singleton, Department of Geography and Planning 
3:45pm – How deep is the reproducibility crisis and can open science help?
Raphael Levy, Institute of Integrative Biology
