CFP: Open Access Week 2012 Networked Researcher Blogging Unconference
Deadline to register: 17th October 2012. Hurry up!
Open Access Week 2012 will take place 22-28 October all over the world.
From the website:
Networked Researcher is convinced, as the Open Access Week web site says, that “Open Access” to information – the free, immediate, online access to the results of scholarly research, and the right to use and re-use those results as you need – has the power to transform the way research and scientific inquiry are conducted. It has direct and widespread implications for academia, medicine, science, industry, and for society as a whole.
Open Access (OA) has the potential to maximize research investments, increase the exposure and use of published research, facilitate the ability to conduct research across available literature, and enhance the overall advancement of scholarship. Research funding agencies, academic institutions, researchers and scientists, teachers, students, and members of the general public are supporting a move towards Open Access in increasing numbers every year. Open Access Week is a key opportunity for all members of the community to take action to keep this momentum moving forward.
Networked Researcher invites all our registered contributors (if you aren’t one yet use the contact form below) to get involved by participating in our Open Access Week 2012 Networked Researcher Blogging Unconference.
