University Libraries' present the public forum "For the Public Good: Research Impact and the Promise of Open Access" on Monday, October 24, 2016 at Torgersen Hall room 1100 located on the campus of Virginia Tech.
Peter Potter, director of publishing strategy for the University Libraries at Virginia Tech, will discuss how open access to research fits with Virginia Tech’s mission as a land-grant university.
Virginia Tech is committed to research that meaningfully engages with the vital concerns of our day such as feeding, building, and empowering a healthy world. How does Virginia Tech’s commitment to engagement fit with the Open Access (OA) vision for unrestricted online access to scholarly research? Have OA journals, public repositories, and federal mandates simply made a researcher’s life more complicated or could OA be the key to unlocking research impact on a global scale? And what are the implications for tenure and promotion?
