		ORBITAL Presents: Open access and the challenge of open science image

Join ORBITAL and Arianna Bottinelli, Associate Editor at Communications Physics for a discussion on Open Access Publishing.

  • Monday, May 17
  • 2 PM GMT+1 (British Summer Time)

In a time of strong criticism towards subscription journals and tension towards a fast transition to open access publishing, it is necessary to take a step back, and understand the history of, and issues and motivations beyond, the open access movement. By going back to the foundation of the first academic journals, and contextualizing in the wider framework of Open Science, I will present the main challenges faced by an ever expanding and increasingly self-aware scientific community, as well as the various attempts to tackle them, without sparing gossips and open, provoking questions.

Arianna is Associate Editor at Communications Physics since July 2019, and handles manuscripts in complex systems, network science, soft and active matter, biophysics, and interdisciplinary research across these fields. She has a background in theoretical physics and her academic research focused on the emergence of collective behaviour in social animals, the evolution of transport networks, and collective motion in high-density crowds and crowd disasters. She is particularly interested in the interdisciplinary aspects of physics and in the connection between science and art.
