Open Access Realities: global experiences of implementing OA

While research and the debate around Open Access continues, policy developments globally means that all key stakeholders including the publishing industry, academics, librarians, university leaders, research councils and other research-funding organisations must already work towards its practical implementation.

UKSG's 2013 One-Day Conference brings together speakers from across the scholarly communications sector, including:

  • Cameron Neylon, Advocacy Director, Public Library of Science:

How are institutions and publishers placed to "really do" OA?

  • Matt Cockerill, Publisher, BioMed Central

  • Adam Tickell, Pro Vice Chancellor, Research and Jill Russell, Digital Assets Programme Manager, University of Birmingham

How are universities putting policy into practice, from both library and research perspectives?

  • Vicky Gardner, Open Access Publisher, Taylor & Francis

How are subscription publishers making the transition to OA?

  • Martin Eve and Caroline Edwards, Lecturers, University of Lincoln (co-founders of the Open Library of Humanities)

How can existing Open Access models work for humanities and social science research?

  • Steven Stapleton, Project Manager, University of Nottingham
