In 2017 I was awarded one of two inaugural Libraries of the Australian Technology Network (LATN) Fellowships. My submission was to attend the 9th Conference of the Open Access Scholarly Publishers Association (#COASP9) in Lisbon, Portugal and meet with research industry, political and other thought leaders in global scholarly publishing and to write a report outlining my findings. This webinar is one avenue through which I will be sharing those findings and the ultimate recommendations based on my research and meetings, including those with: Jean-Claude Burgelman (Snr. European Commission Officer for European Open Science Policy Platform) Liz Allen (Director Strategic Initiatives, F1000) Robert Kiley and David Carr (Open Research Funding, Wellcome Trust, U.K.) David Prosser (Executive Director, Research Libraries U.K.) Lara Speicher (Manager, UCL Press) Peter Suber (Leading Open Access advocate and Senior Researcher at the Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society, Director of the Harvard Office for Scholarly Communication and Director of the Harvard Open Access Project (HOAP)) Kristen Ratan (co founder of the Collaborative Knowledge Foundation or CoKo - an open source infrastructure community) As a result of these conversations and research, in this webinar I will: 1. discuss the idea of a 4-year (conditional) infrastructure project to help make Australian tax-payer funded research open and F.A.I.R. in the manner of a growing number of major funders across the globe including the European Commission. And, 2. Discuss the long term vision for the open access movement more broadly by highlighting the call for a coordinated, collectively funded response to the scholarly communications crisis
