The UK electronic information Group (UKeiG) is pleased to announce a one-day workshop on “Open Access, Open Monographs, Open Data, Open Peer Review: Overview of a Disruptive Technology” at CILIP’s headquarters in the heart of London on Friday, 6th March 2020.
The concept of Open Access to research outputs has been common currency for many years. The rapid growth of the Internet has made different publication models easily available. More recent thinking has expanded the concept of openness even further, to Open Science, which aims to transform science by making research more open, global, collaborative, creative and closer to society. This approach is being embraced by all academic disciplines, including the humanities and social sciences. The shift is extremely important for the development and exploitation of research, and hence for the professionals who support it.
