Description

Shearer's presentation "Think Global: Act Local - Ensuring an Equitable Transition to Open Science" will focus on how open science promises to offer unprecedented access to the full corpus of research, breaking down access barriers for many researchers. However, there is a risk in the transition to open science - new barriers will be erected and a significant portion of researchers/authors will again be excluded from the system because of the predominance of pay to publish models. This presentation will examine the systemic factors including the transition to open science and discuss potential avenues for ensuring diversity, equity, and inclusivity across the scholarly publishing ecosystem. Shearer has been working in the area of open access, open science, scholarly communications, and research data management for over 20 years. She is the author of numerous publications and delivered many presentations at international events. Most recently, she was the lead author of the paper Fostering Bibliodiversity in Scholarly Communications: A Call for Action (April 2020). She participates in the work of numerous other organizations to advance open science around the world and is also a Research Associate with the Canadian Association of Research Libraries (CARL) and has been instrumental in many of CARL’s activities related to open science, including the launch of the Portage Initiative in Canada, a national research data management network.
