This may be of interest to anyone within easy travelling distance of
Oxford. There is also a programme for the rest of our 2012 meetings towards
the bottom of the page (this is subject to change!)
If anyone would like to set up a local Open Science group in their area,
please get in touch as we'd love to support you with web infrastructure,
publicity and contacts wherever we can.

Hi All Just a reminder about next week's discussion, I hope many of you can
make it along with your ideas for how scholarly publishing should look
going forward! Things are changing in the UK with the recent publication of
the FInch Report and RCUK draft Open Access policy, but besides access
we'll be discussing peer review models, publishing platforms, what counts
as a publication and many more topics of direct relevance to researchers
putting out papers.
I look forward to seeing you there and encourage you to spread the word to
any colleagues or friends who might be interested!
