OA has the power to transform the way research and scientific inquiry is conducted; with research
funders and Funding Councils alike, recently launching OA policies.
However, the implementation of OA is not without its issues. The AU OA working group, an Information Services and Department of Research, Business and Innovation collaboration, invites AU academics and researchers to a series of events scheduled across OA week.
These events include:
* Q & A session with HEFCE HE Policy Advisor Ben Johnson, and representatives from the
publishing community, PLOS, JISC Monographs, Biomed Central and Wiley - Arts Centre Cinema, morning of Friday 24 October, 9.30 a.m.
* PURE refresher training sessions, 12pm Wednesday 22nd and Thursday 23rd October, Hugh Owen
Training Room. Spaces bookable via CDSAP webpages.
* “Who owns what and what can they do with it? Copyright and your research publications
workshop” (Tuesday 21 October, 1-2 pm) with AU Data Protection and Copyright Manager, Dr Jonathan Davies. Please send us or bring along licences/copyright agreements which you have been asked to sign when publishing articles. Send licences (or screenshots of licences) and any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org
