[open-science] Looking for Open Access Speakers

Hi Michelle,

The Open Access Directory (OAD) has long maintained an OA speakers bureau.

Some potential speakers might not know about it and therefore might not
have signed up. But wouldn't it be better to enlarge OAD list than start a
new one?

OAD is a wiki. To prevent spam, contributions are limited to registered
users, but registration is free and easy.
