When making your research Open Access, what are some key issues you need to be aware of? How do you share your work while maintaining research integrity?

Open Access is commonly referred to making the research articles freely available online, through either publishing in an OA journal ("Gold OA"), or self-archiving a copy of the manuscript in a depository ("Green OA"). Increasingly, funders, institutions and some journals are requiring openness in other aspects of the research workflow, like dataset or a data management plan. Within this new landscape of OpenScience, how as a researcher, do you navigate a path to openness especially dealing with sensitive issues with research integrity?

This talk will assist researchers in asking questions such as:

  • Why should I make my research Open Access?
    - Looking at the benefits to you, and your research in pursuing open options
  • How can I make my research Open Access?
    - Exploring options for making research open with integrity including: which versions of articles can be shared, sharing of data and datasets, and where they can be shared
  • What are the ethical concerns of being Open Access?
    - Providing information on re-use of Open content, peer review integrity, and ethical responsibilities for authors
