Scholarly Communication


How is Open Access (to data, methods and findings) linked to academic integrity and research conduct? What are the correlations between citation counts and research visibility? Where are open monographs headed?  Please join us for an opportunity to hear from a leading expert in the open access community, Emeritus Professor Tom Cochrane who is briefly visiting Cambridge from Queensland University of Technology in Australia. During his tenure as the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Technology, Information and Learning Support), Professor Cochrane introduced the world’s first University-wide open access mandate, in January 2004. Amongst his many commitments Professor Cochrane serves on the Board of Knowledge Unlatched (UK) is a member of the Board of Enabling Open Scholarship (Europe) and is co-leader of the Creative Commons project for which QUT is the institutional partner for Australia.  

If you have some questions you would like answered please email them to or ask on the day.
