Courtesy of Neil Pakenham-Walsh of Health Information For All:
I would like to extend an invitation to you all to join HIFA for our
next sponsored thematic discussion:
The discussion will start on 22 July and will last for 4 weeks.
We shall explore what OA is (and isn’t), different types of OA, the
difference beteen OA and free access, the impact of OA on authors and users of research (especially those in low- and middle-income
countries), the link (if any) between OA and quality of content
(excluding predatory journals - we aim to address this ‘cancer’ in
publishing in a future discussion) - and more!
The key findings from our discussion will be collated and presented
at the Asia Pacific Association of Medical Journal Editors Convention in Xi’an City, China, 3-4 September 2019.
This should be a fascinating conversation; and given the Community Health Toolkit’s commitment to open access resources, I’m especially excited to join in!
