The representatives from the different universities will present their views on open access. The purpose is to give researchers the opportunity to ask questions and discuss what Open Access means, both to research in general and to individual researchers. How do the universities work with OA today? How do they prioritise between OA and publishing in prestigious journals? What factors surrounding a researcher’s publishing will be taken into account when appointing staff? How do the universities handle OA publication fees?
