Professor Arianna Becerril-García at 2021 strategy day

Earlier this month we held our annual strategy day, which included a wonderful presentation from guest speaker Professor Arianna Becerril-García.

Professor Becerril-García is Chair Open Knowledge for Latin America and the Global South (AmeliCA), Executive Director and co-founder of Redalyc.org, and Professor at the Autonomous University of the State of Mexico. In addition, she is co-founder of the Mexican Network of Institutional Repositories and is part of the committee; Director of Invest In Open Infrastructure (IOI), she is a member of the board of The Global Sustainability Coalition for Open Science Services (SCOSS)

The 30 minute presentation was as insightful as it was engaging, and provided inspiration that there are alternative publishing models which can work really well.
