Description

Across the world, public and private research funders are establishing full open science policies—built on more than a decade of policy precedent requiring public access to publicly funded research. It's clear that the shift toward a system of research that is open by default is underway, but whether that system will be equitable by design remains an open question. As the digital infrastructure for open research is being built, the decisions made now about what platforms to use, which to support financially, and whose interests to prioritize will shape the future of science and scholarship for decades to come. This talk will explore the drivers of this shift toward open research, cover key recent developments, and discuss how to pursue this shift in a way that aligns with this year's International Open Access Week theme of "It Matters How We Open Knowledge: Building Structural Equity."
