Generation Open: Researchers' Roles in the Age of Openness
9:30-11:00 am, Thursday, October 23, 2014
UKAA Auditorium, William T. Young Library
The event will start with Mary Molinaro from UK Libraries providing a description of the current research environment and the expectation of researchers' roles. The first panelist (Dr. Douglas Scutchfield from the College of Public Health) will then discuss the benefits of open access from the researcher's perspective, and his personal experience of taking the lead to support open access by creating a new open access journal. The second panelist (Dr. Matthew Zook from the Department of Geography) will focus on the value of openly sharing research data, especially in terms of how it contributes to scholarship, innovation, and the public good. There will be a Q&A period after the two presentations. This event will be followed immediately by a reception.
