This blog is dedicated to Open Access and related scholarly communication and digital scholarship activities at Imperial College London, including research data management. It is managed by members of the Open Access project, a cross-departmental initiative that supports the transition to open access publishing at Imperial College. We will share updates about of the OA project as well as news about what is happening outside of the university.
What is Open Access?
In short, Open Access is the free and unrestricted online access to outputs of scholarly research. As journal articles and conference proceedings are particularly relevant for scholars at Imperial College you are likely to read a lot about these topics here, but we are also interested in monographs, research data and other outputs of research.
For more information, take a look at the College’s scholarly communications website.
The OA project at Imperial College
The College’s Open Access Project is managed by the Open Access Publishing (OAP) Working Group, chaired by Maggie Dallman (Associate Provost: Academic Partnerships), and delivered through the Open Access Implementation Group (OAIG), chaired by Torsten Reimer (Scholarly Communications Officer). More information about the OA project is available on the scholarly communications website.
