Description

Open Access Week, now in its sixth year, is a global event which promotes Open Access as a new norm in scholarship and research. SPARC(The Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition) and the World Bank will co-sponsor the kickoff event for Open Access Week 2012 in Washington, DC. The event will feature a distinguished panel of speakers representing a broad range of stakeholders in the Open Access movement—researchers, students, policy makers, publishers and academics—who will discuss why Open Access is an imperative to them and their work

The World Bank was recently named a SPARC Innovator for its implementation of a new open access policy, which included the launch of the World Bank Open Knowledge Repository (OKR). The World Bank opened its data to the public in 2010.

  • Neil Thakur, Special Assistant to the Deputy Director, Extramural Research, National Institutes of Health (NIH)

The 90-minute panel will be moderated by Heather Joseph, Executive Director, SPARC, with ample time for questions from audience members. The event will be webcast and recorded for use both during and after Open Access Week. Participants are encouraged to post questions for the panelists on this site in advance.
