Nobel Prize-winning scientist and Director of the U.S. National Cancer Institute Dr. Harold Varmus will offer welcoming remarks. Varmus has been an unparalleled leader in promoting Open Access in a succession of key roles – from introducing the topic of wider access and launching PubMed Central to increase public access to the literature as the Director of the National Institutes of Health, to helping to found the Public Library of Science, one of the world’s leading open-access publishers.

Varmus will be joined by Dr. Cameron Neylon, a Senior Scientist at the UK Science and Technology Facilities Council, biochemist, and author of the widely read “Science in the Open” blog. Neylon will highlight the kinds of scientific advances Open Access can facilitate, and discuss current examples along with future opportunities. A host of leading researchers from around the globe will also add their voices to the event.

Agencies with an open access mandate will describe their process and address issues that they encountered along the way. Those without a mandate will share how their agency views open access and describe initiatives that have been undertaken to support open access.

You might have heard about MIT OpenCourseWare, but did you know that there are 12,000 Chinese courses online, 460 Indonesian textbooks, or 5000 hours of video from one single Pakistani university?

WHAT IT MEANS TO BE AN OPEN SCHOLAR AND THE FUTURE OF SCHOLARLY COMMUNICATIONS

Speaker: Stian Haklev, BA (UTSC), MA (OISE), PhD candidate (OISE)

Time: 12:00pm to 1:00pm

Location: OISE Library (252 Bloor Street West), Ground Floor

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 afterward. 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.

This event will be webcast and archived at: . (RealPlayer required for viewing).
Comment by K. Jane Burpee on August 30, 2010 at 9:52am
The University of Guelph will be celebrating Open Access week. We will use the orange theme colour to create a banner on our homepage. We will put up a display in the library about Open Access. Team members will deliver lunchtime workshops on various OA topics (such as OA 101, the Google Book Settlement, Creative Commons Basics etc). We will also be co-hosting a round table event with the organizers of the CUEXpo.ca. This event will take place in the community of Guelph. Based on the SPARC Voices of Open Access Videos, our event will include 5 speakers: Chief Librarian, Faculty Member, Graduate Student, Funder Expert, and Community Practitioner. Each will speak about the benefits of Open Access from their perspective.

What is your institution planning?
