*Open Access Week Kickoff Event Program Announced; Student and Early Career
Researcher Involvement Highlighted*

Washington, DC — The 2014 International Open Access Week Kickoff Event,
co-hosted by SPARC and the World Bank, will focus on this year’s theme of
“Generation Open.” The hour-long kickoff event will take place on Monday,
October 20th, at 3pm EDT at the World Bank headquarters in downtown
Washington, DC.  It aims to provide a forum for students and early career
researchers to have a lively conversation with an expert panel representing
research funders, university administrators, and scholarly societies,
exploring how the transition to Open Access affects scholars and
researchers at different stages of their careers.

The event will also highlight some of the most interesting student and
early career researcher-led initiatives that exemplify the “Generation
Open” theme for International Open Access Week, including a preview of the
worldwide launch of the Open Access Button.

Moderated by early career researcher Meredith Niles, the kickoff event will
feature questions from both the in-person and online audiences.  The panel
will discuss the role that institutions central to a career in research can
play in supporting—and rewarding—early career researchers in making their
articles and underlying data openly accessible.

The following expert panelists will be featured:
• Stefano Bertuzzi: Executive Director, American Society for Cell Biology
• José-Marie Griffiths: Vice President for Academic Affairs, Bryant
University
• Meredith Niles: Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Sustainability Science
Program, Harvard University
• Jerry Sheehan: Assistant Director for Policy Development, National
Library of Medicine

Topics of discussion will likely include: the role research evaluation
plays in incentivizing openness; how students and early career researchers
have created change on campus and nationally; suggestions for how to
advocate for Open Access with co-authors and PIs; what the institutions
represented by the panelists can do to support early career researchers in
making their work open; and more.

A free webcast and LiveBlog of the panel discussion will be available at
http://live.worldbank.org. No registration is required to view the webcast;
