1st June 2012

Wren Room, RIBA, 66 Portland Place, London, W1B 1AD


This free one day event is aimed at those working in research repositories and higher education libraries but may be of interest to a wider audience including researchers. It will showcase examples of innovative approaches which support open access to research outputs and an open approach to scholarship. This includes new publishing initiatives – journals and monographs, new approaches to peer review, data sharing, the role of repositories and the use of social networking tools by academics. 

The location is RIBA in central London which is a comfortable venue with an impressive Art Deco interior.
