Institute of Public Health in Ireland (IPH): Seminar - Open Access can help deliver a Healthy Ireland

20 October 2014

Co-hosted by the Institute of Public Health in Ireland (IPH) and the HSE Regional Library & Information Service, the seminar aims to:

 

 

  • Raise awareness about Open Access (OA) initiatives and Healthy Ireland
  • Explore how Open Access initiatives can support the delivery of Healthy Ireland
  • Showcase key Irish Open Access initiatives

Healthy Ireland is the new national framework for action to improve health and wellbeing in the Republic of Ireland over the coming generation. Based on the evidence base, it outlines a new commitment to public health with a considerable emphasis on prevention while also advocating for stronger health and social systems.

Open Access (OA) is defined as the immediate, freely available, online access to research outputs. These outputs include peer-reviewed journal articles, conference papers and datasets of various types. The restrictions on use, commonly imposed by publisher copyright, patents or other mechanisms of control, do not apply.
