New Zealand Plant Protection is an open-access journal but many other journals are not! NZPPS member Tom Saunders has developed policy recommendations that will help to encourage open research in Aotearoa and initiate conversations about the paywalls that sit between New Zealanders and the research they fund. Tom undertook this work as part of his internship with the Office of the Prime Minister’s Chief Science Advisor/Kaitohutohu Mātanga Pūtaiao Matua ki te Pirimia. https://www.pmcsa.ac.nz/2022/07/15/the-future-is-open-intern-report-on-open-access-publishing-in-aotearoa/Read more about Open Access publishing in Aotearoa
