Presentation given at OISE library as part of Open Access Week 2010. Video+slides: http://184.108.40.206/OISE/20101021-120919-1/rnh.htm
Abstract: As scholars, we want to make our work widely known, and to receive recognition for our achievements. As educational researchers, we have a special interest in making our research available to those who can practically benefit from it: teachers, school boards, parents and politicians. Open Access to our research publications is an important first step, but we can go much further than this. Scholars in all fields are experimenting with many innovative ways of sharing their research, both during the research process, and afterwards. This presentation will introduce a number of case studies, discuss advantages and challenges in making your research more open, and outline trends in the future of scholarly communications.
