Happening: SPARC and UKSG

I’m at the  SPARC 2012 Open Access Meeting (#sparc2012) in Kansas City this week where John Willbanks (Kauffman Foundation, Creative Commons) is the keynote along with many others –  discussing how to expand the dissemination of scholarly research and open access.

Later this month, I’ll present at the UKSG Annual Conference (#uksglive) in Glasgow. In it’s 35th year, the conference will aim to “connect the information community and encourage the exchange of ideas on scholarly communication”.

The conference will be held at the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre and the UKSG promises “Big thinking + practical learning = unmissable programme”. I’m looking forward to interacting with publishers. Between #OA in KC and publishers in Scotland, it will be an interesting month.

If you find yourself in Glasgow later this month and would like to connect, please  contact me. If you do not find yourself in Glasgow but are interested in the discussion, all presentations will be uploaded here during the conference.
