||ELPUB2007. Openness in Digital Publishing: Awareness, Discovery and Access - Proceedings of the 11th International Conference on Electronic Publishing held in Vienna, Austria 13-15 June 2007 / Edited by: Leslie Chan and Bob Martens. ISBN 978-3-85437-292-9, 2007, pp. 467-468
||The current system of academic publication developed as a means to disseminate the findings of research. However, this system can impede the very process it was set up to serve, with access to articles being limited by publishers to only those who can afford to subscribe. This poster will explain the vision behind DRIVER and will describe how the various aspects of the project tie in together to form the knowledge infrastructure of the European Research Area. The poster will focus on the key aspects of the DRIVER project and the questions and needs that each addresses. The key aspects which will be addressed include: DRIVER technical developments and advice, the DRIVER Support website, community development, up-to-date news, and the benefits for various stakeholders. DRIVER is an ambitious and important project that will yield valuable results for individual researchers, the publishing community, funding agencies and the European Research Community as a whole.
