Celebrating International Open Access Week 2019. October 2019

A global event now entering its 10th year, the initiative is an opportunity for the academic and research community to continue to learn about the potential benefits of open access, to share what they’ve learned with colleagues and to help inspire wider participation in helping make open access the norm in scholarship and research.

And Leeds is joining in the celebrations with a special event on Thursday 24 October.

Nobody left behind: Exploring the role of Open Research in equitable scholarly communication is a series of short talks on the accessibility of open research, followed by a panel discussion about how we can support equitable access to research outputs.

Starting at noon, with a networking lunch provided, speakers include:

  • Dr J Bernadette Moore, Associate Professor of Obesity in the School of Food Science and Nutrition
  • Dr Sunjie Ye, Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Molecular and Nanoscale Physics
  • Shelley Allen, Head of Open Research at Emerald Publishing; and
  • Professor Alice O’Grady, Professor in Applied Performance and Head of the School of Performance and Cultural Industries, as well as a member of the editorial board of Dancecult: Journal of Electronic Dance Music Culture.
