We are delighted today to unveil the One Repo Advisory Board! Although I (Mike) and my Index Data colleagues are plenty involved with the world of open access, we’re well aware that others have far more experience and insight. So we’re working with four of the very best.
Martin Eve (top left) is the driving force behind the Open Library of Humanities. Jan Velterop (top right) brings vast experience from decades working with every publisher you can think of. Cameron Neylon (bottom left) contributes a unique vision of the ways open data can be used to enhance research. And Peter Suber (bottom right) needs no introduction (but here is one in case you’ve been asleep for the last 20 years).
We’re deeply excited to be working with such knowledgeable and wise people, and confident that their decades of experience will help us to avoid all sorts of traps and pitfalls.
(Note: we have invited a few more people to join our Advisory Board. If and when they agree, you’ll read about it here.)
