Open Access Week 2021: Flinders University Library presents

Course description

“It’s publishing, but not as you know it – how open is changing everything”

By Dr Danny Kingsley at 11am on Wednesday 27th October in the Noel Stockdale Room, Central Library.
Open Access Week is an international event held locally, nationally & internationally from October 25-31, 2021: Open Access has the goal of empowering global equity in access to research outputs, removing barriers to access, where ethically appropriate, to anyone with an internet connection. 

Join us to help raise awareness of how to support Open, FAIR, Equitable and Globally Accessible Research at Flinders.   

Despite the seismic shifts of the last couple of decades with the introduction of the internet, scholarly publishing has remained basically unchanged. The Mertonian norms were established in 1942 when science was ‘under attack’, and today science is once more being questioned. It is time to return to our base principles. The open agenda offers a path not only to reproducibility and increased trust in research, but also addresses questions related to research culture, allowing a more diverse and inclusive environment.

Dr Danny Kingsley, is the Flinders University Library’s Associate Librarian, Content and Digital Library Strategy. Danny is an expert in developing strategy and policy in the higher education and research sector with extensive international experience in Australia, Europe and the UK. She was Deputy Director (Scholarly Communication & Research Services) at Cambridge University Libraries for five years. Before moving to the UK, Danny established the Australasian Open Access Support Group (now Open Access Australasia). This followed on from four years as the Manager, Scholarly Communication and ePublishing at the Australian National University.

 Since returning to Australia in May 2019, Danny has consulted for the University of Queensland, QUT, University of Melbourne and the Australian Academy of Sciences. She holds a Visiting Fellowship at the Australian National Centre for the Public Awareness of Science. Amongst multiple Steering Committee and editorial positions, Danny is a member of the Board of Directors for FORCE11 and sits on the Australian Academy of Science’s National Committee for Data in Science.
