Much work is being done by European scholars to change the hearts and minds of their peers towards more Openness. As an international foundation, SPARC Europe is sharing the stories of a range of Europe’s academics in this European showcase.
Champions actively contribute to advocating and implementing new open scholarship principles and practices within their organisation’s research communities. Champions can be research administrators, rectors, senior researchers, PhD students or young researchers.
Libraries are increasingly working together with the academic community to provide more Open Access to Europe’s research. What have they learnt from engaging with their champions?
