Open Access: what’s in it for me as an early career researcher?
When entering the research world, Early Career Researchers (ECRs) may
encounter difficulties building a good reputation for their research, its
quality and the research results. Open access is the movement that could
assist ECRs to: (a) widely disseminate their scholarly outputs, (b)
demonstrate the research and societal impact of their work and, (c)
organise online research portfolios that can be accessed by all
researchers, as well as prospective employers.
