Open Access Week promotes Open Acess “as a new norm in scholarship and research” – both research outputs and research data
The general philosophy of Open Access is that publicly funded research should be publicly available to anyone.
For researchers who make their work accessible, and the data that underpins those works, they are rewarded by increased citations through enhanced discoverability.
Open Access has the potential to greatly accelerate the pace of scientific discovery, encourage innovation, and enrich education by reducing barriers to access.
Open Access is a particularly hot topic both in Australia and overseas with funding bodies now actively supporting Open Access.
For further information about Open Access and its implications for researchers – please contact Chris Evans
These new lunchtime seminars are a great way for researchers to learn about ways in which the Library can support research activity – bring your lunch and we’ll provide drinks.
Venue: Launceston Campus Library, eLab 1
