Leslie Chan's Trip to India

Professor Leslie Chan, Director of Bioline International, flew to India in December 2012 to spread the word about Open Access in the cities of Thiruvananthapuram and Mysore. This was his first visit to southern India. Information Consultant and Open Access advocate Subbiah Arunachalam accompanied Prof. Chan on the trip!

Prof. Chan gave two lectures on December 17th: one at the University of Kerala, the other at the National Institute of Interdisciplinary Science & Technology, CSIR. On December 18th, he headed to the Indian Institute of Information Technology and Management – Kerala to deliver a talk titled “Opportunities for Knowledge Management and Open Access”, during which he explored the current status of Open Access, the issues it faces today, and how its impact can be measured. Prof. Chan then traveled to the Mysore University Library on December 19th, where he spoke about the essential role of Open Access in the future and growth of scholarly research during his lecture titled “Emerging Trends in Scholarly Communication and Impact Measures in the Open Knowledge Environment”. His travels concluded on December 20th at the SDM Institute for Management Development.
