Following Open Access Week this week, we are planning to host a #VitaeChat around open access and open research. The Twitter chat will focus on where we go next with the ‘open’ movement as a research community and establish the links to improving research culture, through equity, inclusion and robust research integrity. With four great panellists lined up, we expect it to be a lively and insightful discussion, of interest to researchers, research leaders, researcher developers and policy-makers.
