What good is research if no one can access it?

That’s the question behind the open access movement – researchers, academics and publishers are opening up their work to the masses. Open Access Week, running from October 19 to 25 this year, is a global event dedicated to that push.

Open access might be a noble goal but is it all positive? What are the costs involved (and what does it mean for the people paying)? How can you figure out who and what to believe? Where should you even start if you’re looking for information?

And what does the future hold for open access scholarship? Here’s your chance to find out.

Ask your questions and we’ll put them to our experts. You can submit your questions below in the comments, on Facebook.com/conversationEDU or on Twitter using the #YourQuestionsAnswered hashtag.

We’re taking questions until Tuesday, October 20, and we’ll report back with a full panel of experts in open access knowledge answering your questions.

We look forward to hearing from you!
