The seminar will aim to explore some of the biggest themes currently shaping Open Access research support. These will include the evolution of transformative agreements in scholarly publishing, the increasing move towards Open Data, and developments in licensing solutions for Open Access content, such as the Scholarly Communications licence. There will also be an emphasis on highlighting current innovations in Open Access research support, with an exploration of practical examples from a number of leading-edge institutions.
The seminar will include participatory elements, and attendees will have the opportunity to discuss and explore the themes raised during the course of the event. Time will be given over so that delegates can put their questions to each speaker and a panel discussion on the second day of the event will provide a forum for participants to explore some of these themes even further.
