Event Description

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.
