Google Docs Session Notes

Advocacy is a critical tool in the global effort to set the default to open for research and education—from the national and internationals levels all the way down to individual institutions. Such efforts have been a driving force behind the success of the open movement to date. Public research funders in dozens of countries now have policies requiring that the results of studies they fund be made publicly accessible, and private funders have begun to follow suit.

This policy advocacy has been central to SPARC's work for well over a decade. This workshop will leverage SPARC's experience and success in policy advocacy, such as the successful enactment of the 2008 US National Institutes of Health public access policy and the 2013 White House Directive on Public Access to Publicly Funded Research, to teach participants advocacy skills that will be broadly applicable to campaigns at various levels.
