As part of Harvard Library’s month-long celebration of International Open Access Week 2021, we conducted interviews with members of the open community. This series, called In Practice: Interviews with Practitioners of Open, highlights the work of practitioners and scholars in the areas of scholarly communication, fee-free open-access publishing, open educational resources, open data, and beyond.
We aim for these interviews to provide a glimpse into how members of the open community approach their work, develop their goals, and identify the factors they take to be critical to realizing a more open and equitable future for scholarly pursuits—a future in which we all may participate in activities of discovery and access, creation and sharing, remixing and rebuilding.
We hope you enjoy this series.
With gratitude to Harrison W. Inefuku, Colleen Lyon, Francesco Maggi, Enrico Valdinoci, Apurva Ashok, Edouard Mathieu, Mitch Nakaue, Julie Goldman, and Amy Nurnberger for sharing their perspectives with us and for making this series possible.
