Editor's Notes

  • Presentation title slide… following the opening slide (containing the large Open Textbook project logo).
    Introduction: 20 minutes
    How many work in an education environment?
    How many have heard of an open policy? What it is?
    Have any of you created an open policy for education?
  • Open policies promote access to, and open licensing of, resources financed through public funding. Open policies can maximize the impact of public investments in science, data, education, libraries, archives, museums, software and other resources through the efficient use and reuse of resources for the public good.
  • On July 15, 2016, the government released their 3rd action plan, titled the Third Biennial Plan to the Open Government Partnership, which continued the commitments on Open Data Canada, the Open Data Core Commitment, and the Open Data Exchange. It added commitments to "Increase the Availability and Usability of Geospatial Data" and release more budgetary, spending, and financial data and information.
  • Following the Ebola crisis and the concerns of the delay of critical information, the World Health Organization convened discussions on developing norms and standards for sharing data and results during public health emergencies. The Zika emergency tested these actions and 11 international journals including The New England Journal of Medicine, PLOS, Springer Nature, and Science journals, pledged that they will make all papers concerning the Zika virus freely available to anyone under a Creative Commons CC-BY license.

    Former US Vice-President Joe Biden announced his support for Open Access research to his $1 billion Cancer Moonshot initiative.  He highlights the public expenditure towards cancer research “And by the way, the taxpayers fund $5 billion in cancer research every year, but once it’s published, nearly all of that taxpayer-funded research sits behind walls. Tell me how this is moving the process along more rapidly.”

    This gets to the heart of the message that Publicly Funded Resources should be Publicly Available- Open and Free.

    NASA is a shining example: The open source code that allowed NASA researchers to remove blur from the flawed images from the Hubble Telescope would later be repurposed for breast cancer screening.
