๐Ÿ“”IMSPARK: academic access and shared knowledge freely๐Ÿ“”

๐Ÿ“”Imagine...academic access and shared knowledge freely๐Ÿ“”

๐Ÿ’ก Imagined Endstate: 

A Pacific where researchers, educators, students, policymakers, and the public can access, use, and contribute to the latest research findings and innovations in the social sciences and humanities without barriers or costs.

๐Ÿ’ฅ What's the Big Deal: 

This presentation by Schulte et al. (2020) provides practical guidance and resources for researchers to publish their work in open access. Access is not only about increasing the visibility of research, but it is also about promoting equity and addressing the knowledge gap. Open access makes scholarly publications available online for anyone to read, reuse, and share without any restrictions or fees. ๐ŸŒIt benefits researchers by increasing their work's visibility, impact, and quality. It benefits society by advancing knowledge, fostering innovation, and promoting social justice.๐Ÿš€ However, many social sciences and humanities researchers face challenges and lack of information about open access. 

In a Pacific context, Open Access can be seen as another venue for equity, where the commodity is knowledge. ๐Ÿ“–Knowledge creates opportunities for innovation, social justice, and economic growth. By making research freely available to everyone, regardless of their location or socio-economic status, Open Access can help address the imbalance in the production and distribution of knowledge, particularly in the social sciences and humanities. ๐Ÿ™ŒThe result of this access could lead to a more informed future, where everyone has equal access to the latest research findings and innovations and advocates for open access in their disciplines and institutions.

๐Ÿ’ฅ What's the Big Deal:

The study finds that a nuanced approach of matching and mismatching audiences is more effective in different phases of disaster response.๐Ÿ“The article discusses the findings of a study๐Ÿ“œconducted in collaboration with the Canadian Red Cross on how Disaster relief organizations can use social media✉️effectively during wildfire response.๐Ÿ“žThe research suggests that matching and mismatching audiences on social media๐Ÿ“บis more engaging and useful in different phases of disaster response, and this approach can be applied to other types of disasters as well.
