Celebrate Open Access Week by hearing how faculty on-campus are working to keep their work open.  We'll begin the program with some short talks followed by time for discussion around the theme "open in action."  Come ready to learn and share your ideas!

Steven Roberts, Kenneth K. Chew Endowed Professor in the School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences
Steven Roberts, the Kenneth K. Chew Endowed Professor in the School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences, received his Ph.D. in Biology at the University of Notre Dame in 2002. His main research interest is the physiological response of aquatic species to environmental change with a particular focus on environmental epigenetics, reproductive biology, and aquaculture.

A large part of his lab's research activity includes analysis of large genomic datasets. In doing this, they practice open notebook science, strive to make all data analysis easily reproducible, and hold open online lab meetings.

Dr. Roberts will be speaking on open science.

Dan Berger, Assistant Professor of Comparative Ethnic Studies at UW BothellDan Berger is an assistant professor of comparative ethnic studies at UW Bothell and adjunct affiliate professor of history at UW Seattle. His most recent book is Captive Nation: Black Prison Organizing in the Civil Rights Era.

Dr. Berger will be speaking on public scholarship.

Justin Marlowe, Endowed Professor of Public Finance and Civic Engagement, and Associate Dean for Executive Education Daniel J. Evans School of Public Policy and GovernanceHe has published four books and more than 75 articles on various topics in public financial management, including capital budgeting and finance, state and local tax policy, public pensions and legacy costs, government financial transparency, and public-private partnerships, and his work has appeared in the top scholarly outlets in public finance, public administration, health care management, transportation finance, and governmental accounting. Several foundations and professional associations have supported his work, including the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and the International City/County Management Association. His column in Governing magazine is read by thousands of state and local policymakers, and he is lead author of Governing's popular Guide to Financial Literacy series for public officials.

Professor Marlowe will speak on his work designing an open textbook.

The way in which scholars produce and publish scholarship is changing into a more open, collaborative, and iterative process.  Based on Daniel J. Cohen and Tom Scheinfeldt's open access book by the same title,  the Hacking the Academy program series explores the evolution of scholarship and scholarly publishing.  This program series will highlight trends in how scholarship is produced, archived, evaluated, and reused through a series of interdisciplinary showcases, discussions, and lectures.  Have an idea for a Hacking the Academy program topic?  Contact us at
