Open Access Week Panel Discussion: Advantages in Open Access

Poster for the online panel discussion 'Advantages in Open Access'

Register online for this event here.

Open Access posits that all forms of research output should be released from restrictions to access and use. A shift in policy, publishing practice, and scholarly communications culture has slowly been taking place in an effort to bring about a meaningful transition to Open Access. There exists some debate about the best approach to achieve this, however the benefits are gradually being realised. For example, to date over 70 studies have been published investigating whether or not publishing your article in an Open Access platform directly increases the number of citations received.

During this webinar, we will be joined by a panel of distinguished international experts where we will discuss the evidence so far, explore how Open Access can benefit different stakeholders in the academic world, and share in experiences from Open Access practitioners.
