Positioning Asia in the Global Movement of Open Science
Open access, and more broadly open science, is a global trend that promises to advance discovery, accelerate innovation and improve education. In order to support open science, governments, universities and other stakeholders must adopt policies, develop services and change their practices around sharing research outputs. The Asian region, in all its diversity, has a strong and expanding position in the international scientific community. This is also reflected in the realm of open science as countries and institutions in Asia implement policies and services to support greater openness.
The focus of this two day meeting is to highlight and share activities across Asia around open access to publications and data. The meeting will support information sharing across the countries in the region. Participants will learn about important trends, and discuss strategies for Asian countries to work more closely together.
The target audience for this two-day conference will be:
Infrastructure and service providers
**Participants are invited to present posters describing work/projects related to Open Access, Open Data, Data Management, Open Science, Repositories, Open Educational Resources, etc. Poster format: A1, portrait. Please contact the organisers if you require any clarification**
