1. Appraise participants of the different categories of open access in terms of copyright, ownership and user rights
2. Provide a forum to discuss how these issues impact on the ability to use and/or limit such outputs as OERs

Rather than seeing the production of academic journal papers as a purely research focused activity distinct from the educational practice; open access and open publishing should be regarded as one of the “emergent scholarly practices that espouse openness and sharing” Veletsianos & Kimmons (2012 p. 167). Terry Anderson (2013) contends that the first step in harnessing and maximising open access scholarly works is the need to understand licensing and copyright conventions and challenge what Rife (2008) refers to as ‘copyright folklore’.  Drawing upon our research regarding open access outputs amongst the EdTech community from 2010 to 2017 this presentation sets out to provide an interactive session with a high level of participation, acknowledging that the experiences and insights from the participants are as relevant as the presenters’.
•Online polling to ascertain participant’s knowledge of OA classifications such as Green & Gold access; copyright, licences and user rights. This poll will provide the stimulus for subsequent small group discussions.
•Presentation on OA Classification, copyright, licence and user rights - opportunity for clarification and illustration and sharing of examples from participants as well as presenters
•Drawing on the lessons and implications of these issues, discuss the role and position of open publishing as an integral element of the OER ecosystem
