Come share your perspectives with the MIT Ad Hoc Task Force on Open Access to MIT’s Research.

The task force is leading an Institute-wide discussion of ways in which current MIT open access policies and practices might be updated or revised to further the Institute’s mission of disseminating the fruits of its research and scholarship as widely as possible.

The task force will solicit input from MIT community members as it develops a set recommendations. Two open forums will be held on the following topics:

Open Access to Publications
April 5
Led by Professor Deborah Fitzgerald, Leverett Howell and William King Cutten Professor of the History of Technology

Open Access to Data
April 10
Led by Eric von Hippel, T Wilson (1953) Professor in Management

Great point Catherine, open tasks forces allow for transparency. They also all allow the pool of information to grow.
