I wanted to share a link to a very important brief report on a meeting hosted this week by the Association of American Universities (AAU) and the Association of Public and Land-Grant Universities APLU). This follows on the recommendations of the recent joint AAU-APLU Public Access Working Group (see https://www.aau.edu/newsroom/press-releases/university-groups-detail-recommendations-ensuring-public-access-research), which I discussed in a posting last November.
A good overview of this report and of the subsequent planning for the workshop was given by Kacy Redd of APLU at the recent ARL member meeting. You can find the powerpoint presentation at
Also of interest is the presentation on the recent National Academies report on Open Science By Design, by Alexa McCray, chair of the committee, at
I posted an announcement about the report earlier as well.
The summary of the workshop, by Mary Lee Kennedy, Executive Director of the Association for Research Libraries, and her colleagues, can be found at
Note that Mary Lee Kennedy will moderate a session reporting on the workshop at the upcoming December 2018 Member Meeting. There will also be sessions on some of the projects that she mentions in her summary.
