Happy International Open Access Week!
Open Acces Week is a global, community-driven week of action to open up access to research, taking place from October 25-31 this year. In celebration of this, our guest on this episode is Heather Joseph, the Executive Director of SPARC (the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition). SPARC is a global advocacy organization working to make research and education open and equitable by design—for everyone. Heather is a United States-based advocate for open access and academic journal publishing reform. Under her stewardship, SPARC has become widely recognized as the leading international force for effective open access policies and practices.
“We have so many structural inequities in the way we share scholarship and knowledge. We have English kind of canonized, as the official language. Why is that? And how can we deliberately look at strategies in the open movement to change that?”
