Thirty Years of Open Access: Challenges and Opportunities for Building Structural Equity

Wednesday, October 27, 2021 at 12:00pm to 1:00pm

Olin Library, 106G 161 Ho Plaza

30 years ago, new technology empowered researchers to share their work freely and openly, before peer review. The result? An incredible acceleration in the speed of science and an expectation for open access across disciplines. At this panel discussion, open access leaders from arXiv, AfricArXiv, and UCLA will discuss how this movement has grown and evolved. We'll look ahead the next 30 years and ask: what opportunities can we seize to ensure that the open access movement continues to equalize and democratize access to research? What challenges must we overcome to truly serve all researchers around the world?
Panelists:

  • Eleanora Presani, arXiv Executive Director
  • Alison Scott, Associate University Librarian for Collections Management and Scholarly Communication at UCLA and arXiv Advisory Board Member
  • Johanssen Obanda, Strategic Advisor at AfricArXiv
  • Joy Owango, Member of the Board of Advisors at AfricArXiv
