Biochemistry Focus Webinar Series

The transition to open access (OA) is accelerating, from the launch of Plan S in 2018 to the introduction of transformative publishing deals and flipping journals. This webinar explored what today's rapid evolution to OA means for the global research community.

Our panel comprised of perspectives from an institution, researchers at different stages of their career, and a publisher. They discussed how they engage with OA from different aspects of the research community.

  • Dr Simon Kerridge, Director of Research Policy & Support, University of Kent​
  • Malavika Legge, Director of Publishing, Portland Press, and Chair of the Society Publishers’ Coalition (SocPC)​
  • Dr Helen Walden, Professor of Structural Biology, University of Glasgow

This webinar was chaired by Dr David Pye, Head of Chemical Sciences at the University of Salford, and the Chair of the Biochemical Society's Policy Advisory Panel.
