Emily B. Boyd, a Business, Economics and Engineering Librarian at Dartmouth, will be attending OpenCon2016, and will be sharing what she learns there with the Dartmouth community. The OpenCon travel scholarship program was started in 2014 to encourage and support early career academic professionals who have the potential to make significant contributions to advance Open Access, Open Data, and Open Education. OpenCon 2016 will be held on November 12-14, 2016 in Washington DC. It is organized by the Right to Research Coalition, SPARC (The Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition), and an Organizing Committee of students and early career researchers from around the world.
We thank all of the applicants for their interest.
If you are interested in attending a future OpenCon, or would like to learn more about how you can get involved with programs regarding Open Access, Open Data, and Open Education at Dartmouth, please contact members of the Open Dartmouth Working Group:
