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…

Negative results or contributions to knowledge?

Negative results are to be expected in experimental science. Most researchers have lab books and files full of negative data, blurry gel photos and graphs showing no significant differences. When I was still working at the bench, the normal procedure was to shelve this data and keep working until you…

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.
