Subject: Free RSP Event - Scholarly Communications: New Developments in
Open Access 1st June, London

I’m delighted to announce that the programme is now finalised for the
Repositories Support Project event: Scholarly Communications: New
Developments in Open Access. It will take place on 1st June 2012 at RIBA

This free event will showcase examples of innovative approaches which
support open access to research outputs and an open approach to
scholarship. This includes new publishing initiatives – journals and
monographs, new approaches to peer review, data sharing, the role of
repositories and the use of social networking tools by academics. 
The day will begin with Martin Hall, Vice Chancellor of Salford
University who will provide the keynote address “Where next with open
access?” followed by Alma Swan, Director of European Advocacy, SPARC and
Key Perspectives, on the Budapest Open Access Initiative at 10 –
recommendations for the next ten years of scholarly communication.
It continues with Caren Milloy from JISC on the OAPEN-UK Project, Peter
Webster on Open Journals at the School of Advanced Study, Simon Hodson
on the work of JISC to support open data publication and Mark Hahnel
from Figshare. It concludes with Graeme Moffat from Frontiers, an Open
Access publisher which is pioneering a novel tier method of evaluation
and Melissa Terras from UCL on using social media to disseminate
research outputs. 
The event offers an opportunity to find out about the latest in open
access to research from an exciting line up of speakers.
