Who’s Paying for Open Access? Funders speak out on mandating “open” to the research they fund (virtual event) @ New Brunswick
Nov 8 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Since the U.S. White House OSTP (Office of Science and Technology Policy) memo in 2013, many funders have started implementing open/public access mandates to publications, data, and other products of research. Funders (both public and private) have moved to mandate open access to the research they fund. By requiring openness, funders seek maximum impact and return on investment from funded research. During this session, major funders will describe their mandates for “open” in this rapidly changing open access environment and where they see open science going in the future. Panelists: Kathryn Funk, Program Manager, PubMed Central, National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), NIH Dr. MartinRead More →

Framing Racial Justice and Police Brutality in the Age of Black Lives Matter: A View from Twitter @ New Brunswick
Nov 18 @ 4:30 pm – 6:00 pm
What is the role of social media in framing the debate over racial justice and police brutality?
