Abstract: Policy is crucial to the progress of Open Access and, happily, is also becoming a focus of intense activity. Numerous policies have been announced by research funders this year alone and others are planned. I will briefly cover some of those developments, particularly where they relate to agricultural research. As it becomes clearer from analysis of existing, older policies that some work well and some work less well, I will also align policy types with effectiveness in practice.
Join: write to before Wednesday, October 17, mentioning the webinar title.
