September 12, 2016 Anna Ehler

Political pressure to make publicly funded research more accessible is continuing to grow, and keeping informed about the global dynamics of open access and data has never been more important for societies who want to be strategic in their publishing program development.  At the London Wiley Society Executive Seminar in April of 2016, Wiley’s Vice President of Publishing Development, Liz Ferguson, explained how governments all over the world are investing more in Open Access and Open Data.

For highlights from Liz’s talk, listen to the latest episode of the Wiley Society Updates podcast below.
