Open Access Lunch and Learn: Reviewing New Open Access and Research Data Requirements
Tuesday, October 25, 12:00 - 1:30
Presenter: Shannon Pritting, SUNY Interim Director of the Office of Library and Information Services
123 Penfield for a local watch party (or join on your own by registering here)
Funding agencies are either requiring that publications and research data resulting from grant funds are made freely available.  For scholarly articles, this creates  a need to fund open access.  For research data, there is now a need for support services and infrastructure to assist researchers with creating plans for managing their research data.  These new or existing open access and research data mandates warrant a review of the issues surrounding the shift to open access, and what support  is needed  for researchers who are navigating how to make their research output and data available.  This presentation will review the major issues with shifts to open access and research data management, and will summarize  SUNY’s current planning and activities in these areas.
