Episode 3: Open Access: Opportunities and Challenges

Conceptually, providing free open access to scientific and medical research makes intuitive sense. Why would research be maintained behind a paywall when we know that it will further science and benefit patients? On the other hand, it has been challenged that industry sponsored research should not be open access. Also, journals struggle with their operational models in an open access world. Join us for InformED where we tackle the issue of open access during a spirited discussion with Kristen Ratan.


Kristen is the founder of Strategies for Open Science and has a 20-year history working to accelerate advances in science and research communication. She co-founded the Collaborative Knowledge Foundation (Coko), was the Publisher at the Public Library of Science (PLOS), and also held leadership positions at HighWire Press, Atypon, and BIOSIS. Kristen is on the board of the American Institute of Physics Publishing, the Code for Science and Society, and ASAPbio. Generously sponsored by MedThink SciCom.
