At the end of the workshop, the attendees will have found their own answers about why they should foster Open Access and what they can do in their institution to promote it.
The first one will consist of a brief overview of basic concepts like Open Access, Open Science and Open Data and some key points that will be discussed in the second part. In particular:
- What researchers need to know before choosing where to publish a research outcome: especially, author rights and self-archiving editorial policies; quality of scientific journals; and policies of funders and institutions in the European Union.
- Special features of health science repositories: specific types of documents and criteria to assure the quality of the content.
- What their institutions need to know if they publish open-access journals and monographs and the strengths and weaknesses of the process.
The second part will include interactive and participatory activities (Knowledge Café/Safari) that allow the exchange of ideas about the topics presented in the first part. Finally, the conclusions will be summarized in a draft document.
Activities and conclusions: 2h
