You, there, the Bay Area researcher! How will you increase the citations and visibility of your work? Not alone, is the answer!
Open Access Week is coming—with a 2015 focus on collaboration—and you are invited to a special event to discuss ways in which you can give your research a boost by working together and sharing what you do. We have a number of terrific speakers lined up who will share insights and information about the tools for and practical advantages of open science.
