Open and Shut: #OpenScience, #OpenAccess and #OpenData round-up

Author: No Comments Share:

First up for today’s Open and Shut round-up is a video of an Open Science debate held in Oxford on the 29th Feb 2012. The diverse panel included publishers, funders, academics and entrepreneurs: Tim Gowers the Fields Medal winning mathematician, Victor Henning the co-founder and CEO of Mendeley, Robert Kiley from The Welcome Trust, Alison Mitchell from Nature Publishing Group, Cameron Neylon the open science activist and blogger, Lord Robert Winston the advocate of public engagement, and Alicia Wise from the publisher Elsevier. The event was organised by Victoria Watson and Simon Benjamin (the latter chaired the discussion).

At nearly 2-hours long it’s quite a lengthy discussion, but it’s well worth watching for those of you interesting in hearing from a reasonably varied group of individuals involved in the Open Science movement:
