Open Access Week: Exploring Open Science

As I mentioned a few days ago, the kind librarians of Brock University in St. Catherines, ON invited me to give a talk as part of their Open Access Week suite of events.

I've included my slides for the presentation below. There was a small but engaged group of mostly librarians that turned up.

Please don't let the high number of slides deter you from zipping through the presentation. A good chunk of the slides only have a couple of words on them and another good chunk are screen shots of xkcd strips.

The slides are in our IR here and on Google Docs here.

I'd like to thank Barbara McDonald and all the other librarians at Brock for their kind invitation.

Hi Jean-Claude,

Thanks. The audience seemed very receptive and open-minded, so I'm hopeful.

John - great presentation! Ok if I use a couple of your slides (with full attribution, of course) in a talk I am giving in Denver shortly?
