Creating a better future for communities through research

Guelph Voices of Open Access

Oct 21, 2010

Should scholarly research be freely accessible online to everyone?

Whether you imagine a researcher seeking to reach scholars in developing countries, a community practitioner needing up-to-date data, or a recent university graduate seeking scholarly information on a topic, it becomes easy to see how free online access to peer-reviewed scientific information and discoveries benefi­ts our communities and society as a whole.

Guelph Voices of Open Access will connect scholars and community members to this global movement that seeks free open sharing of research ­findings. Speakers include:

Mike Ridley: Chief Information Officer, Chief Librarian, University of Guelph

Beverley Hale: Associate Dean, Ontario Agricultural College, Professor, School of Environmental Sciences, University of Guelph

Ajay Heble: Professor, School of English and Theatre Studies, University of Guelph, Artistic Director, The Guelph Jazz Festival, Project Director, Improvisation, Community, and Social Practice

Sarah Hook: PhD Candidate, Animal & Poultry Science, University of Guelph

Sarah Haanstra: Social Planning Director, United Way

Talks will be followed by discussions and refreshments.
