On January 9, Senate formally endorsed an Open Access Policy for Simon Fraser University, effective January 2017. To satisfy the policy requirement, postdocs can provide an electronic copy of the finalized text of their published articles to the Simon Fraser University Library. The Library will make the articles available to the public, taking into consideration any requirements for access delay. Please join us in conversation with Nicole White to learn more about the many supports, including funds, available to postdocs for open access publications.

Since May 2012, Nicole White has been the Head of the Library’s Research Commons. She is responsible for coordinating graduate focused services, workshops, and tutorials that will support graduate students at all stages of graduate research, writing, and publishing. Nicole has worked as a liaison librarian at SFU Surrey and SFU Burnaby since 2004.

Date/Time: Monday, March 27, from 12pm-1pm 
Location: Bennett Library 7010 (Research Commons)
Register: Register using myInvolvement 

This session is part of the Brown Bag Lunch Series, offered in partnership between the SFU Postdoctoral Fellows Association and the Office of Graduate Studies and Postdoctoral Fellows. All SFU Postdoctoral Fellows and Graduate Students are invited to attend. 

Please feel free to bring your lunch with you as we explore this topic informally over lunch hour. Coffee will be provided.
