Physician and Patient-Oriented Open Access to Research
June 13, 12:00PM-1:00PM in Saskatchewan (CST)
Presented by Dr. John Willinksy, Professor, Graduate School of Education, Stanford University

The Canadian Tri-Agency open access policy on publications aims to make publicly funded research openly available to other researchers, and to the general public.

This one-hour webinar explains Open Access and its implications to researchers and patients who might want to use the results of those studies, as well as grant writers who need to plan for knowledge dissemination through Open Access publications.
