Event description

Description

The concept of Open Access to research outputs has been common currency for many years. This reflects the rapid growth of the Internet making different publication models easily available. More recent thinking has expanded the concept of openness even further, to Open Science (OS), which aims to transform science by making research more open, global, collaborative, creative and closer to society. This approach is being embraced by all academic disciplines. The shift is extremely important for the development and exploitation of research, and hence for the professionals who support it.

Programme

Workshop outline and topics

This one-day workshop gives an overview of developments in Open Access, Open Monographs, Open Data and Open Peer Review. This will be framed within the context of Open Access as a disruptive technology. Delegates will be encouraged to raise questions and debate issues of immediate concern throughout the day.

Topics covered include:

  • Disruptive technologies – examples, definition (following C.M. Christensen) and discussion
  • Open Science – what it encompasses; the rationales given for instance by the OECD for its development
  • Open Data – what it is; how it is managed; policy development
  • Open Access – definitions, policy development; costs; the challenges of moving from subscription to Open Access; obstacles and practicalities.
  • Open Access scholarly monographs - the new frontier? Open Access in STM subjects is well established, but the Humanities and Social Sciences now stand to benefit greatly too
  • Open Peer Review – traditional peer review practice, the characteristics of Open Peer Review, definitions, the spread of Open Peer Review
  • Open Access as a disruptive technology? Implications for the future - our world turned upside down
