  • Introduce ourselves
  • There are many definitions of open access, but I like this one by Peter Suber because of its simplicity. Peter Suber is one of the most notable voices in the Open Access movement. He is the Director of the Harvard Office for Scholarly Communication, Director of the Harvard Open Access project, Faculty Fellow at the Berkman Center for Internet and Society, and Research Professor of Philosophy at Earlham College.
  • Many of these new access models are driven by the concept of “open” which encompasses a lot of meanings:More open for both creators and usersGreater openness by way of removing access barriers, such as subscriptionsGranting rights up front to enable sharing and reuseAnd creating opportunities for new forms of technology-enabled scholarship and data mining to move forward
