The Open Access Revolution: Expected and Unexpected Changes to the Research Landscape
Join University of Oklahoma Vice President for Research and Regents' Professor of Meteorology Kelvin K. Droegemeier for a presentation on the challenges of data sharing, open access and academic research. This presentation briefly examines both the challenges and opportunities " practical and philosophical " associated with the open sharing of research data. Fundamental issues include but are not limited to the definition of data, determination of what should be shared, assurance of proper use, the relevance of reproducibility, assignment of credit, and cost as well as ownership of the cost. Views will be offered regarding the potential for open access to fundamentally transform the scholarship enterprise in ways both good and bad. This event is free and open to the public.
