OASPA is pleased to announce the next OASPA Webinar *Reviewing the Data on
Knowledge Creation: Access, Governance and Equity *which will take place on
Tuesday March 7 at 2 pm UK/UTC

This webinar will focus on the data that exists about scholarly
communication. Such data includes anything that enables us to expose and
analyse the processes, connections and entities involved in all aspects of
research communication.

Most of the data we currently have, however,  doesn’t fully cover the
research output of the Global South and is unrepresentative and incomplete.
We will address issues of inequity and discuss the challenges in sourcing
data that is truly representative of global knowledge creation. We will
also discuss the governance and funding it will take to create a coherent
and equitable system. There is an innate conflict between proprietary and
closed datasets that are available only to those who can afford them versus
an open universe of data that enables all communities involved in knowledge
generation to contribute, access and analyse data.

The webinar will be chaired by *Iryna Kuchma *and *Catriona MacCallum *with
panellists *Lucy Montgomery*, *Ludo Waltman *and *Caleb Kibet*.
