We are pleased to announce our programme and open the booking for Open Access Oxford Week, which will round off the summer term with daily events across the university. Join us to discuss developments in research dissemination and scholarly communication, policy and practice, all in the context of open access. With a mix of local and visiting speakers, we look forward to welcoming representatives from Research England, the National Institute for Health Research, JISC, Altmetric and the creators of ‘author copyright’ game The Publishing Trap.
We’ll also hold a social science-focused day on 14 June entitled ‘Publishers, papers and peer review’, led by Professor Alis Oancea (Oxford University Department of Education) and exploring publication strategies, predatory journals, open practice and data, social science repositories, responsible research metrics, and OA policies. Speakers include leaders from academia, publishing, and preprint servers SocArxiv and SSRN.
Please visit the Open Access Oxford Week programme page for latest details – and additions! – and booking. All events are free and open to all University staff and students, especially academics and researchers, research students, research support staff and librarians.
