Hear from Wellcome Trust’s Head of Open Research Development on Plan S and the role that funders are playing in the Open Research movement.
Robert Kiley is Head of Open Research at the Wellcome Trust where he is responsible for developing and implementing an open research strategy. The overarching aim is to help ensure that researchers are equipped, empowered and motivated to make research outputs findable, accessible and usable – and to use these outputs to accelerate research and improve health.
Over the past decade, Robert has played a leading role in the implementation of Wellcome’s open access policy and overseeing the development of the Europe PubMed Central repository. Robert also acts as the point of contact for eLife, the open-access research journal, launched in 2012 with the support of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, the Max Planck Society and the Wellcome Trust, and more recently championed the work to create a new open publishing platform for Wellcome researchers – Wellcome Open Research.
Robert is a qualified librarian and an Associate Member of CILIP. Robert also sits as a Director on the ORCID Board.
