The world of research is undergoing somewhat of a revolution – with researchers increasingly required and able to share their findings rapidly, openly and fully to support access, use and re-use.   The transition to open and collaborative ways of working requires shifts in technology to be accompanied by changes in behaviours and in the ways we work together as a research system.

This keynote will cover: the rationale and key drivers for open research from both a funder and a scholarly publisher perspective;  examples of how funders and scholarly publishers can facilitate the transition to open research; and reflect on the challenges and opportunities that remain in this transition and how this impacts on institutions and their librarians .
