Presentation given at Little France 21st Jan 2014:
The ways in which UK academics communicate their research are changing rapidly. Open Access has been around for some time, but new funder-led requirements that research must be made available in an Open Access format means that researchers need to consider what this means for their research as a matter of urgency.
This session will give you some background to Open Access and what it seeks to achieve, as well as an update on current funder requirements. More importantly, we will provide information about the services offered by the College and the Library's Scholarly Communications Team to guide you through the process of making your research Open Access. Finally, there will be a 'Question Time' where you can ask questions about Open Access, funder and publisher policies, and all aspects of scholarly communications.
