Open access: Going for Gold?
A lot has happened since our last discussion about open access to publicly funded research. The Finch Group have released their recommendations, and both the Government and RCUK have responded. We’re pleased to announce that Mark Thorley (NERC, RCUK) will be with us to present RCUK policy and answer your questions as part of a discussion with Professor Stephen Curry (Imperial College), to be chaired by Richard Van Noorden (Nature News).
And there’s a lot to discuss! We’ll have representatives from HEFCE, RLUK, NERC, Wellcome Trust, MRC, NIMR, Imperial College Library - and more - in the audience. If you have a question you’d like to ask, or an issue you’d like to raise, please enter it when you register.
Please join us for a drinks reception at 6.30pm, the discussion will be held between 7 and 9pm. If you're a Twitter user, you may like to follow the discussion using #icoa.
We look forward to seeing you for an evening of lively and informative discussion.
