Librarians have been at the forefront in promoting open access publishing options and informing their researchers about the open access landscape. In the run-up to Open Access Week, our colleagues at Library Connect held a webinar to showcase some of the tools that librarians can use to enable more inclusive, collaborative and transparent research.

Webinar: How to leverage open hard hardware to improve your research

This webinar, on Thursday, October 24, will explore why open source hardware is important and how it benefits the research community. Prof. Joshua Pearce, Editor-in-Chief of Elsevier’s open access journal Hardware X, will document how the open source model works for technical development and the potential future applications of this approach, harnessing advanced materials science. He will conclude with opportunities for applying the open innovation model to any scientific field.

The webinar — How to leverage open hardware to improve your research — is being presented by Elsevier’s Researcher Academy. Register here.

Elsevier offers a mix of publishing models that reflect the different ways authors choose to publish articles. With growing demand for open access, we are working hard to deliver what researchers need. We have a number of initiatives that support open access, and we are investing in capacity-building to remain one of the fastest-growing open access publishers. In 2018 we published 26 percent more open access articles than the previous year.
