SCHOLARLY OUTREACH, IMPACT AND OUTCOMES: The Sixth UCL Bloomsbury Conference 28-29 June 2012

Roberts Building, Torrington Street, London WC1EA 7JE

We all know now that it is the aim of the government to give the general public access to all scholarly publications. Yet this has to be just the first step if such access is in the main other than a gesture. What can scholars, publishers, funders and librarians do to make scholarship accessible in a real sense to practitioners and scholars in different disciplines as well as the public through interpretation and explanation? What are they actually doing and planning to do? 

This conference comes just in time to hear presentations on the initial launch of the Royal Society Science as a Public Enterprise project (Professor Brian Collins), the Gateway to Research from Research Councils UK (Drs Astrid Wissenburg) and the relevant aspects of the Finch Report (Dr. Michael Jubb).

Discount for ALPSP members.
