A two-day workshop on ‘Implementing Finch’, organised by the Academy of Social Sciences, has been taking place over the past two days, 29-30 November. Janet Finch chaired the first day, and speakers included Dame Lynne Brindley and Rita Gardner of the Royal Geographical Society, who was a member of the Finch Group. RIN’s Ellen Collins has blogged about the event. No doubt we shall hear more about the discussions in due course. In the meantime, the presentations and an audio record of an earlier discussion meeting for learned societies in the humanities and social sciences on open access and its implications are now available on the British Academy’s website. Michael Jubb was among the speakers.
