Open to all

How open is the research landscape? Explore with us through the voices of the research community.

As the open research landscape changes and the transition to an ‘open’ world picks up pace, this year’s Open Access Week theme “Open for Whom? Equity in Open Knowledge” give us the opportunity to reflect on whether the landscape is inclusive for all.

We’re passionate about giving a voice to the research community and in doing so we have partnered with F1000Research to share with you a range of views from the research community.

We want to address this year’s theme by discussing equity in more detail and look further at how we support not only open access but also a research ecosystem that serves the needs of a diverse global community.

Get involved!  – If you would like to be a part of the conversation and contribute to our open debates blog we would love to hear from you. You can get in touch here.
