Advocacy/Policy Strategy. The top priority for SPARC will be to raise the public policy profile of Open Access to the results of research - including journal articles, data and educational resources.

  *   Leading efforts to advocate for policies that provide for Open Access to journal articles, data and educational resources on the institutional, state, national and international levels
  *   Supporting research on social/economic benefits of Open Access to research outputs
  *   Leading and expanding U.S. National Working Group on Open Access
  *   Working with media outlets to promote public awareness of Open Access
  *   Working with public and private research funders to create and implement Open Access policies
  *   Expanding wholesale communications and outreach efforts to maximize reach of campaigns
  *   Actively participating in coalitions working on our target "Open" issue areas
  *   Participate in and promote productive collective efforts to build scalable capacity to support effective implementations of Open Access policies (i.e., SHARE, OpenAire, etc.)
  *   Hosting Biennial North American Meeting on Open Access to journal articles, data and educational resources
