Open Access in Sweden moving beyond transformative agreements

In our latest Open Voices blog post we talked to to Wilhelm Widmark, Library Director at Stockholm University Library, about the Open Access strategy of Swedish universities and research institutes who are organised in the Bibsam Consortium.

Wilhelm and his colleagues in Sweden have been thinking hard about how to move beyond transformative agreements, which might involve walking away from some deals! Read the full interview with Wilhelm here: https://hardimanlibrary.blogspot.com/2023/09/wilhelmwidmark.html


FAIR Faculty Workshops

The University of Sheffield Library will be holding a series of Faculty specific seminars looking at the FAIR principles which aim to make data (and other outputs) Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable.

These seminars will introduce the benefits of applying these principles (i.e. enhanced impact, increased collaboration, greater credit for all research outputs, speedier progress) and will showcase our new FAIR guidance resource, created to help researchers embed the principles in their projects.

These faculty specific seminars are open to all interested colleagues at all career stages, join us to find out how you can contribute to a FAIR future for research!

Registration is required. Please select the workshop for your home faculty or whichever best suits your discipline/availability.
