"On 27th September 2012 the Imperial College SciCommForum held a follow up discussion on open access to publicly funded research in response to the Finch Report and RCUK Policy.
We were joined by Mark Thorley (NERC, RCUK) and Professor Stephen Curry (Imperial College) and Richard Van Noorden (Nature News) chaired the discussion. We had representatives from HEFCE, Wellcome Trust, RLUK, MRC, NIMR, Imperial College Library - and more - in the audience, and the discussion continued on Twitter under the hashtag #icoa.
With thanks to Professor Stephen Webster (Imperial College) for funding.
The audio of the discussion was uploaded yesterday and can be found here on figshare:- http://figshare.com/articles/Open_Access:_Going_for_Gold_/96158
