Presentation at University of Toronto at Scarborough and UofT Missisauga as part of Open Access Week 2010.

Abstract: This exciting presentation will focus on what it means to be an Open scholar/researcher. Stian, one of UT’s graduate researchers, will discuss his experience using the wealth of OA journals and other resources in his research. He will share his knowledge of other scholars who have made their research process open, using Web 2.0 tools like Twitter and Academia to network with researchers, disseminating their finished product in a range of open network environments. This presentation will appeal to any students who wish to participate in the open international environment of the research enterprise.

Video link will be added soon.

  2. 2. Open Scholar?
  3. 3. The Open Scholar, as I'm defining this person, is not simply someone who agrees to allow free access and reuse of his or her traditional scholarly articles and books; no, the Open Scholar is someone who makes their intellectual projects and processes digitally visible and who invites and encourages ongoing criticism of their work and secondary uses of any or all parts of it--at any stage of its development. Gideon Burton, www.academicevolution.org
  4. 4. Publication
  5. 5. Open Access Green OA
  6. 10. Open Access Green OA Gold OA
  7. 12. But will anyone read it?
  8. 40. The current Open Access model is provisioning for legacy genres and formats of scholarly communication. That's great for archival purposes, but this is not the next real destination for scholarly discourse. Why? Because consequential intellectual work takes place in myriad ways outside of traditional scholarly genres, that's why, and the digital realm is ready to capture, organize, value, and disseminate those other ways of generating knowledge. Gideon Burton, www.academicevolution.org
  9. 42. Other things Data of all kinds, including interviews, reading notes Papers written for school Teaching material
  10. 43. Research process
  11. 53. Possible problems? Getting scooped Privacy and ethics The data deluge
  12. 54. Online profile
  13. 58. Conclusion Improves the quality of your research Increases your connections, reach, opportunities “ Flattens ” the world of academia Don’t have to do all, but try some of it!
