mb-hssoacard-281013Organised by Jo Young and Graham Steel of the Informatics Forum to mark Open Access Week this event drew a diverse audience from inside and outside the University.
In his keynote talk, “The Humanities, Cultural ‘Data’ and the Problematic Resistance to Openness’ Dr Martin Paul Eve (Lincoln) gave a view of Open Access from the Humanities’ perspective and explained that it was in our mutual interest for those working outside the Academy to understand and help their Humanities colleagues struggling to embrace Open Access.

Eva Amsen of F1000Research, a well-known open science journal, gave an overview of modern Open Access publishing – rapid publication, transparent peer review and data deposition and sharing.

Dominic Tate, Manager of the Scholarly Communications Team at Edinburgh, emphasised Edinburgh’s long-standing commitment to Green Open Access and explained the services the SCT offers to respond to Open Access, such as paying article processing charges and running the Edinburgh Journal Hosting Service using the Open Journal System (OJS).
