18 August 10:00 – 11:30 Open Access is the Future: Enhancing your Research Visibility
Maximising the visibility and impact of research is becoming ever more important in Academia than before.

Making your research freely available not only allows it to be more widely distributed resulting in increased visibility and citations, but it also complies with Funding Institutions and Institutional Policies.
