What to expect?
Open access (OA) has expanded the possibilities for disseminating research and accessing that of others.
This movement has created a new channel of research in the scholarly community which has also lead to the objective evaluation of activities concerned with scientific research & technological development within the OA research landscape.
This presentation will take a practical approach using case studies from South Africa and a specific focus on Stellenbosch University to give an insight into the opportunities and challenges regarding the evaluation of research output in Open Access.
The Open Access initiatives of Stellenbosch University Library and Information Service will shortly be introduced prior to the presentation and an opportunity for Q & A will be presented thereafter.
