Lessons from Open Access Advocacy

Feedback form is now closed.
Over the last twenty years, I have been involved with a number of advocacy initiatives for open access for a variety of organizations, including framing the Budapest Open Access Initiative, working with national funding agencies, private foundations, and international organizations. These activities include awareness raising, grant development, infrastructure development, and policy planning, all with the goal of promoting the uptake of open access among the academic communities and beyond. 

Awareness for OA has surely increased, it is however far from a universal practice.  It has become clear that a great deal of the optimism for OA has not been matched by the uptake. How can we use lessons of the past to move forward with new voices moving into the space? Come join us for an interactive session on exchanging advocacy strategies for open access, and share failures and success stories.

Denisse Albornoz, research associate of the Open and Collaborative Science in Development Network <http://ocsdnet.org> will be co-presenting the workshop.
