Advocacy Talking Points 
OpenCon 
• The premier international conference for students and early career 
researchers on the topics of Open Access to research articles, Open 
Education, and Open Data. 
• Convened approximately 175 participants from more than 40 countries, 
most of whom received full travel scholarships. 
• Goal is to empower the next generation of scholars and researchers to 
advance the open sharing of knowledge in research, education and data 
through awareness raising in local communities and effective national and 
international collaboration. 
Open Access 
• Open Access is the free, immediate, online availability of research articles, 
coupled with the rights to use these articles fully in the digital environment. 
• The United States engages in and invests in research in order to accelerate 
the pace of scientific discovery, encourage innovation, enrich education, 
and stimulate the economy – to improve the public good. 
• Communicating the results of that research is an essential component of 
the research process – research can only advance by sharing the results, 
and the value of an investment in research is only maximized through wide 
use of its results. 
• However, because of cost barriers or use restrictions, research results are 
not available to the full community of potential users. 
• The Internet gives us the opportunity to bring this crucial information to a 
worldwide audience at virtually no marginal cost, and allows us to use it in 
new, innovative ways. 
• Open Access provides a solution to fully leverage our collective investment 
in research.
Open Data 
• Open research data is data generated during the research process that can 
be freely used, reused and redistributed by anyone – subject only, at most 
to the requirement to attribute and sharealike. 
• In order for knowledge to advance, the results of research must be shared 
freely so that they can be fully understood and built upon. 
• This is particularly critical in the scientific research process, where the 
validity of results can only be verified through replication. Ensuring full 
access to and reuse of research data facilitates this process. 
• In addition, making research data broadly accessible and fully available for 
reuse encourages new research through the reanalysis of existing data, 
further leveraging the value of a research investment. 
• Providing access to data that is made accessible in formats and under 
terms that enable full reuse promotes interoperability, and allows the data 
to be mined using cutting-edge computational tools across huge amounts 
of data to find connections, trends and patterns that can’t be uncovered 
when data is kept closed or isolated. 
Open Education 
• A new model for disseminating knowledge by maximizing the full benefit 
of the Internet to improve teaching, learning and access to education. 
• OER are distributed freely online under an open license that grants blanket 
permission for reuse rights to the public. 
• Users are free to share, copy, paste, edit, adapt and interact with the 
content — in short, everything we are used to doing on the web. 
• Students can access OER online for zero cost and get low-cost print 
copies, which increases education affordability.. 
• Teachers can collect and tailor OER to perfectly suit their curriculum, 
which can enables better teaching and learning. 
• Entrepreneurs and authors benefit too, because they can build businesses 
around OER and disseminate their work to a worldwide audience.
