The Australasian Open Access Strategy Group (AOASG) advocates to make Australasian research Open and FAIR.
The AOASG supports the Open Knowledge foundation definition of “Open”, i.e. that anyone can freely access, use, modify, and share content for any purpose. We also support the right of authors to retain their copyright and to be attributed for their work. We also recognize the need for research outputs to be FAIR and contributed to the development of the F.A.I.R. Statement in 2016.
