Description

Join us for OPEN ACCESS COOKIES and a livestream of the 2014 International Open Access Week Kickoff Event, co-hosted by SPARC and the World Bank and taking place in Washington, D.C.

This forum will facilitate conversation between students and early career researchers and panelists representing research funders, university administrators, and scholarly societies, all of whom are exploring how the transition to Open Access affects scholars and researchers at different stages of their careers. The panel will discuss the role that institutions central to a career in research can play in supporting and rewarding early career researchers in making their articles and underlying data openly accessible. The forum will be moderated by early career researcher Meredith Niles. Panelists include:

  • Stefano Bertuzzi: Executive Director, American Society for Cell Biology
  • José-Marie Griffiths: Vice President for Academic Affairs, Bryant University
  • Meredith Niles: Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Sustainability Science Program, Harvard University
  • Jerry Sheehan: Assistant Director for Policy Development, National Library of Medicine

Topics of discussion will likely include: the role research evaluation plays in incentivizing openness; how students and early career researchers have created change on campus and nationally; suggestions for how to advocate for Open Access with co-authors and PIs; what the institutions represented by the panelists can do to support early career researchers in making their work open; and more.
