SPARC Europe’s new service – Europe’s Open Access Champions – focuses on
highlighting some of the persons who are driving Open Access forward in
Europe’s academic communities.
Despite seeing significant international and national Open Access policy
development across Europe, it is the research community and senior
administration who can create the cultural change necessary to embrace a
new scholarly communication system.
SPARC Europe has brought a selection of people or ‘champions’ together in a
new online showcase.
Rectors / chancellors, professors, senior and junior researchers and
administrators share their personal views on what still needs to be done to
achieve more Open Access. They are helping change the hearts and minds of
peers towards more openness. They tell us why and how – in their own words.
