Public Research and the Open Access Movement
On this episode of Think Business Futures, we took a look at the business behind academic publishing. We examine the production side, by speaking with Ros Attenborough, an early career researcher at the University of Edinburgh. Then, David speaks with a consumer- in this case, Belinda Tiffen at the UTS Library.
Finally, our producer, Jason, speaks with Ginny Barbour, Director of the Australasian Open Access Strategy Group about the vision for open access in the academic world.
For more information on open access, including the glossary of terms, check out this guide.
Virginia (Ginny) Barbour works at the Office of Research Ethics & Integrity and the Division of Technology, Information and Learning Services at Queensland University of Technology (QUT). She is also the Director of the Australasian Open Access Strategy Group.
