- Where is the research going to come from for OERs and open text books?
- How do we determine if OER and open research are "credible"?
- How do we address publication and tenure issues with OER?
Open Access in research can ensure the widest dissemination and use of that research. I would like to see institutions supporting research in such a way that closed options (commercial journals) are less attractive. OERs become "credible" and "reputable" when the materials used to create them come from respected open journals. The default for research should always be open. Our support will make them reputable!
