Research to action: Open Access Week 2016

Open Access Week is here. To celebrate all things OA, Taylor & Francis have worked with learned society publishing partners to handpick a selection of research articles that demonstrate how research can be used and applied in our everyday lives. From healthcare to housing, education to the environment, this collection showcases the many ways research can help inform policy makers, practitioners, clinicians, industry, and us all on today’s vital issues. Read the research to action collection now.

There are a series of highlighting activities through the course of this week:

  • Launch of the research to action article collection
  • OA Week exclusive cartoon on research to action
  • Wednesday, 2.30-3.30 GMT: Twitter discussion on wider engagement in research, with a virtual panel from Sense about Science, the South African Society of Anaesthesiologists, and T&F’s Publishing Director for Medicine and Open Access
