Description

Creating and Interacting with Open Access Research and Data

There is a growing emphasis on the value of making research data and output openly available. Open access to research makes sense from both a pragmatic and ethical standpoint. But how does one actually go about making their scholarly work more open? In this practical workshop we will explore how to become an open scholar, with an emphasis on the many areas of the research cycle that can be opened up. Participants will be provided with an overview of accessible tools and initiatives for creating and interacting with open access research and data. This is an open-level practical workshop geared toward students, librarians, scholars, publishers, government representatives, and community members.

Participants should bring laptops in order to engage with example tools and projects, but no advanced technical skill is required. You will need to use the public wifi service or Eduroam to be able to connect to the internet. Instructions can be found here - https://www.bl.uk/help/wifi-guide
