Wed, 24th May 2017 - 9:30am to 4:30pm. Location: 7 Ridgmount Street WC1E 7AE London United Kingdom.
 
This one-day workshop gives an overview of developments in openness in Open Science, Open Data, Open Access and Open Monographs, framed within the context of a disruptive technology.  Research, information and library professionals keen to understand the impact of Open Science, Open Data and Open Access on their work, their institutions and the current and future services they provide for their users.

The programme includes:

  • Disruptive technologies – examples, definition (following Christensen) and discussion
  • Open Science – what it encompasses; the rationales given for instance by the OECD for its development
  • Open Data – what it is; how it is managed; policy development
  • Open Access – definitions (Green, Gold, gratis and libre, toll access), brief history, policy development; costs; obstacles and practicalities
  • Open Access scholarly monographs - the new frontier?  Open Access in STM subjects is well established, but the Humanities and Social Sciences now stand to benefit greatly too
  • Open Access as a disruptive technology?  Implications for the future - our world turned upside down
