Open Access will be celebrated internationally from the 21st – 23rd October 2013. Here at Bath we are drawing together a group of speakers around the theme of Innovations in Publishing for an afternoon event on Wednesday 23rd October, 2pm – 4.30pm in the Graduate Centre, 4 West. Each speaker will give a bite-sized presentation on a particular topic relevant to open access and the changes happening around scholarly communication and publications. This afternoon is open to University of Bath researchers, staff, research students and our wider research community. Tea, coffee and cake will be available. Please contact the Opus team in the Library (firstname.lastname@example.org) to save a place!
