(16 May 2023) Open Access Australasia is convening an online workshop, in collaboration with OA2020 the ISC, cOAlition S and additional partners, to bring together a wide range of participants from across Australia, Aotearoa New Zealand and the immediate region to discuss the challenges to equitable open access in 2023 in this region and to explore potential solutions. The ideas from this workshop will expand and build on insights gathered in a previous workshop focused on viewpoints from Africa and Europe, and will be used to inform the development of practical mechanisms and action lines to reduce inequities that can be taken up by the different actors in scholarly communication, globally and within the open access community in Australasia and the Asia Pacific.
The workshop will run for three hours and will be divided into three parts:
- A series of pre-agreed video vignettes (max 5 min each) that highlight key challenges.
- A facilitated breakout group discussion
- A general discussion of the issues raised through a panel discussion and participant input
The event will be held on June 1st, 2023 11:00 – 14:00 AEST.
