Jisc/ ARMA- FOSTER Open Access Webinar series

There is an ever-growing expectation on UK institutions to ensure compliance with a range of Open Access policies, at both a domestic and European level. To ensure compliance with these various policies, professional administrators must be equipped with adequate knowledge of the practical realities of implementing an Open Access strategy.

Targeting the UK’s professional community of research managers, administrators, librarians and all other institutional staff who are involved in or have an interest in the implementation of Open Access, this series of *free* webinars will aim to deliver enhanced understanding of Open Access implementation across a range of thematic areas:
