Open Access Summit a great success

Posted on August 5, 2013 | in Projects, Uncategorized | by

Organised by the Open Access ImMeadowsplementation Programme the Summit took place on 24 July in the Main Library. William Nixon, Digital Library Development Manager at Glasgow was the guest speaker, freshly returned from his world travels. His talk was humorous, engaging and well received by Open Access project staff. It was clear from his visit that Edinburgh’s project scale and organisation is unique with a greater volume of paper uploads and focus on finding rich seams of existing open access material. On the other hand Glasgow has a lot of expertise with metrics and their repository’s impact on the public visibility of research. Many useful ideas were shared on implementation problems, concerns and opportunities. We hope there might be a similar meeting later this year once the Scholarly Communications Team Open Access advocacy campaign has rolled out across the campus. The Edinburgh slides are available on SlideShare.
