The open-access movement continues to make great strides in reshaping the established parameters for scientific communication and access to scholarly information. Even backers of traditional publishing models have begun to seek out ways of adapting to this rapidly shifting landscape. At the heart of this movement is the aim of providing both researchers and the general public with free access to content, thus accelerating the pace at which advances in research may be made both within and across the boundaries of specific fields as well as sparking public dialogue rooted in the latest findings on a given issue.

But how visible is open access? Establishing the infrastructure to make scholarly information freely accessible has been critical to getting open access on its feet, but where does it go from here? Is research that is neither easily discovered nor readily understood by most people actually “open”? This panel discussion will examine ways of building on open access to enhance the discoverability, visibility, and comprehensibility of research for specialists and nonspecialists alike with the goal of more broadly redefining the concept of “openness” anchored within the OA movement.
