SPARC Open Access Meeting 2014 @ Kansas City, Missouri
Mar 3_Mar 4 todo o dia

Washington, DC – The Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition (SPARC) is pleased to announce panel topics and to invite participants to register for the Spring event set to take place in Kansas City, Missouri on March 3-4, 2014.

The past year has seen growing momentum on many fronts of the movement towards “open”. Advances in the areas of open access, open data, and open educational resources have grown exponentially since the last SPARC Open Access Meeting was convened in 2012. As this push for greater openness continues, these three fronts are converging in interesting and potentially transformative ways. Join us as leaders from the library community, academia, industry, student community, and other research avenues discuss how open access, open data, and open educational resources are intersecting, and the impact this convergence will have on research and discovery. The meeting is designed to emphasize collaborative actions that stakeholders can take to positively impact publishing, policy, digital repositories, author rights, and licensing.
