Discovering Open Practices

“Discovering open practices” is a one day conference and workshop for Postgraduate Research Students and Early Career Researchers and will take place on the 4th September 2014. It is co-hosted by King’s College London, LSE and Queen Mary University of London Libraries and will take place at the Strand Campus. The aim of this event is to introduce a practical knowledge of open access and open practices to postgraduate research students and early career researchers from across the three institutions.

The day will introduce concepts and themes around open research and the open agenda, provide practical help in engaging with open access to research information, and investigate some of the broader topics relating to open access that researchers need to consider.  We have some great speakers lined up, including Cameron Neylon and Caroline Edwards, as well as practical workshops on the themes of open access, research data sharing and enhancing impact via openness for early stage researchers. The event is funded by the EU FOSTER project, more details here: http://www.fosteropenscience.eu/
