Research Conversation Series – Programming 2021-2022

Join us during our next event in the Faculty of Education's Research Conversations Series for a discussion about the ins and outs of open access publishing.

Date: October 19, 2021

Time: 1:00 to 2:00 PM EDT

Registration is required.

Event Description

Recently, there has been growing interest in open access publishing versus traditional publishing methods. In this conversation, we will walk you through what open access publishing is, the benefits of open access publishing, where open access articles get published, how to create a real-world impact with your work, and the steps required to publish your work in an open access format. We will provide tips and tricks on how to write your article, walk through the peer review process, and elaborate on the publishing ethics and standards. Through this dialogue, we hope to provide insights to upcoming scholars and graduate students on the open access publishing process and to encourage our scholarly community to publish their work in an open-access format to facilitate knowledge sharing in order to contribute toward the real-world impact of our findings. The session will be bilingual.

Our presenters represent the Equitable Leadership Network Educational Research Unit:

Stephanie Chitpin is Professor of Educational Leadership at the Faculty of Education, University of Ottawa, Canada. Professor Chitpin’s principal contribution to leadership and to the professional development of principals rests on her rejection of the inductive method. She argues that knowledge is acquired by hypotheses deductively validated as “falsifiability criteria”. Her research funded by The Social Sciences Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) and The Ontario Ministry of Education, Canada, are international in scope, and includes the analysis of the Objective Knowledge Growth Framework (OKGF) based on Sir Karl Popper’s critical rationalism, as a new tool for understanding principals’ decision-making.

Olfa Karoui is a graduate student specializing in leadership, curriculum, evaluation and policy studies at the Faculty of Education. With a background in psychology and biomedical sciences, Ms. Karoui's research interests are anchored in educational leadership and focus on the impact of food insecurity on the health, well-being, and academic performance of students. She is also involved in research projects that aim at studying the decision-making processes of leaders working with marginalized populations.

Douglas Archibald is the Director of Research and Innovation and an Associate Professor in the Department of Family Medicine with cross-appointments to the Department of Innovation in Medical Education and the Faculty of Education. Professor Archibald holds a PhD in Education (University of Ottawa) and is an alumnus of TUTOR-PHC. His research interests are in health professions education, programme evaluation and assessment, research methodology, and educational technology. He is the lead for the Program for Research Innovation and Medical Education (PRIME) and works to support research development and evaluation of research projects designed to enhance undergraduate and postgraduate medical education as well as faculty development in the Department of Family Medicine.
