In late 2015 I attended the ESRC Academia & Advocacy debate about cycling – an excellent day conference to “bring together researchers and advocacy groups to provide space, time and room for discussing the redefinition of the role of academic research as the interface between advocacy and activism and policy making.”
A Storify Twitter summary, slides, and recordings are available from the event’s dissemination page – as well as my contribution, Information on Open Access for cycling advocacy groups. I wrote this in order to help people who aren’t involved in academia to search for and read Open Access research outputs. Although written with the transport cycling interest in mind, the contents are broadly applicable.
