Over the Autumn months, a range of free FOSTER webinars have been delivered in partnership by Jisc and ARMA. These have been organised in order to support the obligation on UK institutions to ensure compliance with a range of Open Access policies, at both a domestic and European level.
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 have aimed to deliver enhanced understanding of Open Access implementation across a range of thematic areas.
Below are links to video recordings of each of the webinars as well as links to the slides used:
