Joe joins the ↵ R2RC as an accomplished Open Access advocate, having co-founded and co-led the ↵ Open Access Button. The Open Access Button aims to illustrate the impact of ↵ paywalls around scholarly research articles, and the project has gained ↵ significant attention both within and beyond the Open Access community, ↵ including from the Guardian, Scientific Americanand EU science ministers. Joe ↵ also has a strong background in working with student organizations, including ↵ many years as a leader within Medsin-UK, the UK’s largest student run global ↵ health network. As the Assistant Director of the Right to Research Coalition, Joe’s primary ↵ responsibility will be in further strengthening the coalition’s engagement with ↵ its membership of more than 75 student organizations, which collectively ↵ represent nearly 7 million students in over 100 countries around the world. ↵ While based in London, Joe will play a large role in organizing and amplifying ↵ the student voice to advocate for policies promoting Open Access to scholarly ↵ outputs across the EU and beyond. Joe will also support preparations for ↵ OpenCon 2014, the student and early career researcher conference on Open ↵ Access, Open Education and Open Data, as well as for International Open Access ↵ Week. Finally, Joe will continue to play a major role in leading the Open ↵ Access Button toward continued success as the project enters its next stage of ↵ development and nears a major release. You can get in touch with Joe by email and twitter. This announcement is available online at ↵ http://www.righttoresearch.org/blog/r2rc-adds-joseph-mcarthur.shtml.
