SPARC (The Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition) and the World Bank have announced they will co-sponsor the kickoff event for Open Access Week 2013 on Monday October 21st in Washington, DC. The live event will take place at the state-of-the-art World Bank facilities and will host a Liveblog and Webcast for those who cannot attend in person. The event will also be recorded, and be available to the community for use during and after local Open Access events.
The event will begin at 3:00 p.m. EST and consist of a 90-minute panel discussion with Open Access experts from a variety of stakeholder groups as well as representatives from the World Bank and SPARC. As this year's theme is "Open Access: Redefining Impact," the panelists will discuss Article Level Metrics and changing the way scholarly communication is measured. Speakers will be announced in early September.
During the event, the winners of the Accelerating Science Award Program (ASAP)<http://asap.plos.org/> will be announced. The ASAP Program, sponsored by 27 global organizations including Google, PLOS, and the Wellcome Trust, recognizes those who have built upon Open Access scientific research for new innovations shaping our society.
