Today! Open Access Week event: Redefining Impact (Webinar) @ 3 p.m. in P/K Simons Room

This year’s kickoff event will feature a 60-minute panel discussion on the topic of “Open Access: Redefining Impact.” Panelists representing a diverse set of stakeholders – scientific researchers, publishers, technologists and policy makers – will examine the potential positive impacts that can result when research results are shared freely in the digital environment.

The panel, moderated by SPARC Executive Director Heather Joseph, will feature:

• Dr. Stefano Bertuzzi, Executive Director of the American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB) • Brett Bobley, Chief Information Officer for the National Endowment for the Humanities • Dr. Kathleen Fitzpatrick, Director of Scholarly Communication of the Modern Language Association • Dr. Michael Stebbins, Assistant Director for Biotechnology in the Science Division of the White House Office of Science & Technology Policy • Dr. Cameron Neylon, Advocacy Director for Public Library of Science

The panel discussion will be followed by the presentation of the winning nominations of the new Accelerating Science Award Program (ASAP), which recognize those who have used Open Access scientific research to create innovative new discoveries and solutions, and a wine reception sponsored by SPARC.
