Dear all,

The DST-Centre for Policy Research at Indian Institute of Science is pleased to invite you to the

Panel Discussion


“Institutional Open Access Policy”

What Universities and Administrators Can Do to Promote Open Access?

Faculty Hall, Indian Institute of Science

 27 Oct 2017 (Friday) | 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm

Open Access seeks to return scholarly publishing to its original purpose: to spread knowledge and allow that knowledge to be built upon.  Price barriers should not prevent students, researchers (or anyone) from getting access to research they need. Open Access, and the open availability and searchability of scholarly research that it entails, will have a significant positive impact on everything from education to the practice of medicine to the ability of entrepreneurs to innovate.
