Dr Marta Teperek from the Office of Scholarly Communications will discuss how Open Research embodies ideas of best research practice by opening access to results, data, protocols and other aspects of the research process.

It also includes the use of open source software and open standards that offer unfettered dissemination of scientific discourse.

By working in this manner it is likely we will increase reproducibility of research findings by providing full access to the major components of (particularly) scientific research. 

Dr Rupert Gatti is Director of Open Book Publishers. Founded in 2008, it is already the biggest open access academic publisher of monographs in the UK and amongst the leaders in the English-speaking world.

They are now the hub of choice for a rapidly increasing international network of scholars who believe that it is time for academic publishing to become fairer, faster and more accessible.

The talks will be followed by a buffet lunch and an opportunity to talk to the speakers and other conservation researchers.
