Policy: Making Open Access Work for Ireland - Intro - Prof Luke Drury and Prof Orla Feely by The Royal Irish Academy published on 2013-05-27T13:10:58Z Speakers: RIA President, Professor Luke Drury Professor Orla Feely, Chair, Irish Research Council The Royal Irish Academy and the Irish Research Council held a forum on Open Access on May 2, 2013. Representatives from Irish researchers, public research funders, publishers and industry met in the Royal Irish Academy to discuss the implications of rolling out Open Access to all publicly funded research in Ireland, including making research freely accessible without charge on the internet. Speakers at the Forum considered how Open Access can support the best research to reach not only the best scientists but also a wider public audience. They considered whether and how Open Access can encourage greater use of research by small and medium enterprises, and explore how Irish Open Access policies measure up against the proposed UK ‘Gold Model’ of Open Access and the European Commission’s proposed ‘Green Model’.
