SPARC is one of the leading international forces for effective open access policies and practices. As the primary advocate for U.S. open access policies, including the landmark National Institutes of Health (NIH) public access policy and a White House Directive, Heather Joseph will share insights on the U.S. and international state of OA.
Tom Cochrane led QUT's OA polices in the early years of the OA movement. Under his leadership as the then Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Technology, Information and Learning Services), QUT became a global leader in the push for open access to its research outputs and was the world's first university to mandate open public access to its entire scholarly work in 2003. Tom will address the Australian Open Access situation, focusing on policy and practical challenges.
This event is free and open to all.
Morning tea will be available from 9:30am.
