Over the past year, the need for an overarching national strategy in Australia for open research that aligns the many ongoing individual initiatives has become increasingly apparent. There are an increasing number of countries that have developed and are in the process of implementing such strategies.
The Council of Australian University Librarians and the Australasian Open Access Strategy Group are convening a number of webinars to explore further how an Australian national strategy might be developed.
In the first of this series (Thursday 12 November), we will hear from three individuals who have been key in the development of national strategies in their respective countries:
- Dr Pirjo-Leena Forsström (IT Centre for Science, Finland)
- Dr Patricia Clarke (HRB Open Research, Ireland)
- Professor Noorsaadah Abd. Rahman (University of Malaya)
Panel Chair – Catherine Clark, Advancing Open Scholarship Program Director, Council of Australian University Librarians & University Librarian, Curtin University.
Our next webinar in the series will be on 23 November and we’ll hear from an Australian panel.
