Analyst, open information champion

While there has been an exponential growth in publicly funded research literature in recent years, user paywalls and disparate websites make accessing this information difficult. Timothy, a senior analyst at the University of Southern Queensland, is determined to unlock this wealth of information. He has created an easy-to-use website, openaccess.xyz, which provides centralised and free access to publicly funded research. Timothy is using his AMP Tomorrow Fund grant to develop and promote this online resource: “Students, business owners, farmers and more, will be able to locate information and improve their knowledge by reading high-quality, current research at no cost.”
