From October 18 to 24, events for promoting open access will be held throughout the world.
The 6th SPARC Japan Seminar is titled "Open Access disseminated from Japan," and we wish that it will provide an opportunity to discuss how research results in Japan should be disseminated both for now and in the future.
We hope that many can participate in the seminar!
On June 16, the "Basic Guideline for Science and Technology Basic Policy Planning" was released, for establishment of the "4th Science and Technology Basic Plan" for fiscal years 2011-2015, which is to be decided by the Cabinet during the current fiscal year.
The "Basic Guideline" states that, as part of the efforts for "realizing a research environment that is at par with the international standards," it is important to promote the institutional repository and open access.
It also stipulates that, as part of the efforts for establishing the "policy for science and technology that are developed together with citizens," it is necessary to have a framework in place so that researchers release the outline and results of their studies in an easy-to-understand manner.
In line with the "Basic Guideline," three speakers will make presentations, which will be followed by the general discussion.
*Kazuhiro Hayashi (The Chemical Society of Japan)
*Yuko Murakami (Associate Professor, Division for International Research and Educational Cooperation, Graduate School of Science, Tohoku University)
*Keisuke Iida (Database Center for Life Science)
