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.
