Redefining Impact

For Open Access Week, I've written an essay on Planeta.com and requested comments on my blog.If there are any takeaways from previous efforts in opening and sharing access to information is that what is most effective is the most widely understood. Wonky weasel words don’t cut it. Meaningful interaction with knowledge requires that we…See More

Ron Mader commented on Marianne Buehler's blog post University of Nevada Las Vegas Libraries Open Access Week Presentations
"Two questions: what percentage of faculty and students are able to edit a wiki? Are there local examples of open access in practice?"

"I think the translation project would be a great Hackathon. Since your title is last year's theme you may try looking up past events from those regions.As for font the words International OPEN ACCESS WEEK are Myriad Pro bold."

"Thanks, Andrea. I've seen the International Download page but I'm curious as to whether we could stoke a massive translation effort. For example, I'd love to know how to translate 'Open Access Week' into indigenous languages…"

"Ron, I'm checking with PLOS regarding the font. I'll let you know when I find out! In terms of translations- have you looked at the International Downloads: http://www.openaccessweek.org/page/international-1 Happy OA Week planning! "

Translating 'Set the default to open'

Greetings, all! I have two big questions for the Open Access community:1) What type font does Open Access use in its logo? If possible, I'd like to match it in some of the fan art I'm making for the big week.2) How do you translate the seminal phrase 'Set the default to open' in other languages? I'd like to start with Spanish ('Establecer el valor predeterminado a abierto') but I need to run this Google…See More

Reflections on Open Access

Greetings, all I am a novice when it comes to open access, so I look forward to learning a lot this week. The question I would like to answer is ... how do I explain 'open access' options to colleagues working in conservation? These friends are academics, journalists and goverment officials. That said, it's been difficult to get these fans of email attachments onto the social web. That said, I believe that sharing and remixing are the future so we might as well get good at this sooner than…See More

What's the level of OA awareness where you are?
Low
What are your goals for OA Week 2014?
I'd like to learn the basics and acquaint myself with the ideas. In particular I work with international organizations, academics and marginalized indigenous communities who share serious questions about protecting legal rights. I have no clue how to translate the ideas I've heard about OA so that it would make sense to colleagues.

For background on my work and interests, here's the workshop I led in 2012 at the global Biodiversity Convention http://planeta.wikispaces.com/cop11web

Also, here's the Planeta Wiki page about Open Access

How did you hear of the OA Week site?
Thank you, Twitter!
