[Commons-research] Commons-research Digest, Vol 2, Issue 14

I don't know whether the iSummit/iCommons have a policy on this, but let's remember that the research track, like any research workshop/conference hopes to attract people beyond the "usual suspects" of CC/icommons circles and some degree of flexibility may be warranted. 
 
By that I mean that if we have a great submission by someone who is highly critical of CC and let's say he/she is also very skeptical when it comes to open access, but is making a strong case for his/her position and that position is backed by some solid research, then this may be a person we will want to have presenting at the research track. So, I guess all I'm saying is let's try to reach out beyond the community and give people the flexibility to present their research as they wish, within some commonly accepted bounds. Some kind of speaker agreement may be a suitable tool for this purpose.

We can presumably have some kind of speaker agreement, that asks them to indicate whether they are happy for their materials to be made available, and if so how.

Unless the iSummit has a global policy on this.

Good point, so far we make it clear that the extended abstracts will be published online, but haven't specified anything for the presentation slides. People will be likely making last-minute edits to their slides shortly before they present, so this would be something I would prefer to bring up during the workshop.

Also, some researchers may not want to share their slides, for example if these contain very early results, so I think we could bring this up during the workshop and discuss possible objections to this, if any. I support open access, but I'm also sensitive to the reasons why some people may not want to make all their presentation material publicly available, so perhaps we can have an opt-out system where open access to presentation files is the default and if someone wants to opt out they can express this during the workshop.

Sounds reasonable?

May I suggest that the CFP include a statement that accepted researchers
will be expected to provide a copy of their presentation for free
distribution online?

I think it is valuable to be explicit and up-front about open access; in
this way, open access becomes the norm.
