As Open Access becomes established as a permanent fixture in the scholarly
communication area, the challenges and opportunities presented by the Open
environment increase in scale and complexity. This talk will examine some
of the key trends pointing towards additional opportunities for large-scale
change in not only how we access and use scholarly research outputs - but
also how they are disseminated, curated and evaluated. Heather Joseph
serves as the Executive Director of the Scholarly Publishing and Academic
Resources Coalition (SPARC), an international coalition of academic and
research libraries working to expand the global, cost-effective digital
communication of research results. As SPARC’s Director since 2005, Ms.
Joseph leads the strategic and operational activities of the organization,
and has focused SPARC’s efforts on supporting emerging publishing models,
enabling digital archives, and establishing open access policies on the
national and international levels.
