The LSE Public Policy Group and SAGE, in association with the British Academy and the Academy of Social Sciences, present this must-attend event for humanities and social science researchers as part of Open Access Week 2013.
Focusing on the opportunities and challenges that open access presents for the humanities and social sciences, the conference will provide stimulating contributions from all sides of the OA debate, with the goal of encouraging and shaping HSS-relevant engagement. Featuring panellists from academia, funders, publishers and learned societies, it will address the foundational questions of ‘Why Open Access?’ and ‘What type of Open?’ before considering the potential benefits that OA could provide for HSS and the possible routes towards more open futures.
Leading up to the event, the LSE Impact of Social Sciences blog will also be covering the on-going discussion over open access in the humanities and social sciences. Join in on the debate at lseimpact.com.
