Open in Action: One Editor's Perspective

October 26, 2016 Kelly Neubeiser

One of the components of this year’s International Open Access Week theme, "Open in Action," includes highlighting those who have demonstrated their commitment to the open access movement. University of Hull Professor of Nursing, Roger Watson, is the Editor-in-Chief of two Wiley journals, both of which contribute to the open access mission by allowing authors to easily make their work freely available around the world. The Journal of Advanced Nursing offers the opportunity to publish open access through OnlineOpen, while Nursing Open, a fully open access journal, publishes all articles under the Creative Commons Attribution (CC BY) license.

In this podcast, Watson shares his expert insight on the challenges facing open access, reflects on his work in the research field and provides tips for early career researchers looking to further their careers.


What are your thoughts on this year’s theme? Let us know in the comments below, or join the conversation on Twitter using hashtag #OAWeek.
