Bodleian iSkills: Help! I'm an author get me out of here (A discussion about evolving research dissemination for Oxford authors and journal editors)

This presentation and discussion focuses on research dissemination difficulties encountered by Oxford researchers, and invites authors and journal editors of the collegiate University to contribute their views. The current UK open access (OA) environment is extremely complex, and the concept of OA as a ‘good thing’ is being lost. Inefficient processes are unavoidable; an astonishing amount of money is changing hands; numerous new journals are being produced; OA policies and funding are regularly reviewed and open to change; and all the while, research dissemination is evolving. Authors are caught in the middle of a complicated, and sometimes conflicting, mixture of requirements from funders and publishers. Many researchers want to use new models to distribute their findings and discuss them with peers. University research support staff attempt to filter policy requirements and simplify instructions and procedures for authors, whilst supporting them in using all forms of dissemination. The event will comprise a presentation followed by time for questions and discussion.

Intended Audience:  Oxford University Researchers
