Global Access to UK Research: Removing the barriers: "The JISC wishes to invite individuals in the further and higher education sectors who are interested in the dissemination of the results of UK research to attend a one-day seminar at Universities UK, Woburn Place, London on Thursday 20 November. The distinguished guest speakers - who include Mark Walport of the Wellcome Trust and Jean-Claude Guedon of the University of Montreal - will describe current initiatives to remove the barriers to research publications. The barriers of price and licensing restrictions are hindering access to the results of academic research world-wide, and the seminar will place UK initiatives in the context of international moves to create open access to published research."
