Thursday 6 June

4:30pm - 6:30pm
Global challenges make it ever more important to make science widely accessible - both the process of research through citizen science, and the outcomes of research: data, results and publications.
The model of academic publishing thus lies at the heart of the promise of open science. However, today, whereas science is largely funded by tax-payer money, it remains too difficult both for scientists and citizens to access to its results because of high subscriptions costs and access fees.
This panel discussion gathers scientists and professionals of academic publishing to debate ways to revise the century-old model of scientific publishing and turn the promise of open science into reality.
