How can open research help overcome the issues currently affecting the research community?

In this talk, Ashley Farley (Program Officer of Knowledge and Research Services and the lead of the Open Access team at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation) discusses the issues currently plaguing the research community – such as perverse incentives, publish or perish perceptions, and information overload – and how open research practices can provide a salve.

The solution focuses on building from community-led initiatives and imbuing the ecosystem with transparency, ending with a call-to-action to make history by changing the status quo. The time for open access is now and this presentation will explain why.

This lecture will be pre-recorded. Submit questions for Ashley Farley to answer during the Q&A section here by Monday 24 January: https://forms.gle/xZMrpJYsgi34KDxe8
