UKeiG CPD course: How open are we?

“The course offers a high-level overview of the current position of Open Science and its main elements – Open Access, Open Monographs, Open Data and Open Peer Review.  The concept of Open Access to research outputs has been common currency for many years. More recent thinking has expanded the concept of openness even further, to Open Science, which aims to transform science by making research more open, global, collaborative, creative and closer to society. This approach is being embraced by all academic disciplines, including the humanities and social sciences. The shift is extremely important for the development and exploitation of research, and hence for the professionals who support and exploit it.

Who should attend?

Research support staff, information and library professionals, early career researchers and publishers, who are keen to understand the impact of Open Science on their organisations and on current and future service provision. 

The key aim of the workshop is to provide a state-of-the-art overview of Open Science issues. It will benefit professionals across all subjects, sectors and disciplines, who are new to, interested in or needing a refresher on, Open Science issues.  It will also be of interest to those working in publishing.”
