Last week an excellent conference was run by QUT on Open access. It featured a wide range of international and Australian speakers. The benefits of open access publishing of research outputs and data were well described. You can follow the conversation on Twitter by using the hashtag #oarconf2013. Congratulations to QUT for celebrating the 10th anniversary of their Open Access Policy with such a stellar event.
