The workshop looked at case studies of different approaches to planning for OA in the next REF, allowing delegates to use the session to share experiences and apply best practice to their own institutional plans.
This workshop provided a forum for discussion of practical experiences on the management of APC payments from institutional and publisher perspectives and enabled good practice to be identified.
This free FOSTER webinar, delivered in partnership by Jisc and ARMA, provided participants with a range of approaches that will aim to help widen awareness and broaden understanding of OA amongst researchers and research support staff.
This free FOSTER webinar, delivered in partnership by Jisc and ARMA, provided participants with a means of identifying and agreeing OA principles and management processes across the institution, as well as signposting practical steps that can be taken in scoping and instituting workflows on a technical and human level.
Jisc/ ARMA- FOSTER Open Access Webinar: Working with Publishers– September 2015
This free FOSTER webinar, delivered in partnership by Jisc and ARMA, provided participants with publisher perspectives on OA and tips on how manage relationships with publishers. A range of practical steps were covered, alongside longer term and national initiatives.
This workshop offered an opportunity to discuss plans about implementing the recently revised Open Access policy for the next Research Excellence Framework exercise and to share good practice. This presented an opportunity to find out about Open Access technical solutions and developments.
The workshop looked at institutional case studies of different approaches to planning for OA in the next REF. Delegates were then able to use the session to share experiences and apply best practice to their own institutional plans.
This workshop encompassed two parts: dissemination of the work carried out by the HHuLOA project to date, and a workshop to explore how open access can support research development that is building on this work.
This workshop highlighted how you can use ethnography and behavioural change analysis to understand your researchers, analyse your current practices and achieve the behaviour change required.
How do we communicate clear, consistent messages to researchers on the what, why and how of open access? This workshop, part of the UCL, Newcastle and Nottingham Jisc OA Pathfinder project, will bring together representatives from institutions, publishers and funders to discuss best practice in communicating with authors, and identify opportunities to develop a more joined up approach to open access advocacy.
Glasgow Pathfinder (E2EOA) workshop: ‘Open Access and the REF: Issues and Potential Solutions’- Jan 2015
This all day workshop looked at metadata requirements, processes, evidence and related issues for the next REF. Intended to be an interactive workshop, it brought together those interested in how we can use/ develop/ modify institutional systems (CRISs and/or IRs and/ or other software) to manage the additional metadata requirements for the next REF.
Manchester Pathfinder (opeNWorks) project workshop– 5th December 2014
The opeNWorks project has released its report from the ‘Finding our way after Finch: lessons learned and where they lead’ workshop held in December. The workshop reflected the early focus of the project on the experiences of the project partners in supporting Open Access (OA) since the launch of the RCUK OA policy and provided the project team with a deeper understanding of the support needs of a range of institutions.
Jisc OAIC webinar: Total Cost of Ownership– November 2014
This webinar provided an overview of the rationale, adopted methodology and data analysis / research, which has formed part of the Jisc Collections ‘Total Cost of Ownership’ (TCO) project.
This workshop aimed to consider how the HEFCE open access policy will necessitate new patterns of working and changes to workflows and processes, as well as offering an opportunity for information sharing and wider discussion.
This workshop explored open access process issues with relation to inclusion of relevant necessary metadata fields in repository systems (in particular Eprints) and sharing best practice in this area.
Due to the overwhelming popularity of the last webinar on the same subject held in May, the webinar was re-ran to allow as many people as possible to engage with some of the issues featured. Both webinars were in response to HEFCE’s new policy for open access relating to future research assessments, and aimed to provide an opportunity for delegates to receive an overview of the policy and to pose questions and comments to HEFCE and Jisc directly.
Jisc OA Implementation Community Workshop– June 2104
This was the first Jisc OA Implementation Community (OAIC) workshop which brought together the current, newly commissioned OA Good Practice Pathfinder projects with those from the wider HE community, who have in common interest of implementing Open Access requirements of research funders and HEFCE.
This Webinar provided delegates with an overview of HEFCE’s OA policy for the post-2014 REF and the implications on research and the assessment of research. It also considered what services, tools and guidance are available or are forthcoming to support institutions in the implementation of this policy and what key issues will need to be addressed if full implementation is to be fully realised.
