Hello Paige,

Did you know it’s International Open Access Week?

New Harvest has a philosophy to Default to Open because we believe open amplifies impact.

By ensuring that the assets we create (images, publications, and more) are accessible for all to use, re-use, redistribute and build upon, we are multiplying the impact of that asset many times over. Open invites collaboration, discussion, and reflection - all of which are crucial in positively transforming our food system.

We can not unleash cell ag for the public good unless publicly funded research is publicly accessible!

Unfortunately, research publishing in particular is a difficult area to enforce this value. Open access fees are expensive, and publishers make scientists jump through hoops to make their research open.

We have been working on new approaches to supporting open access publishing in cell ag, and today I’d like to announce two exciting areas we hope will help:

New Harvest is launching an open repository - a place to collect cell ag knowledge in one location, making it openly accessible for scientists, regulators, innovators, and the public.

All cell ag researchers are encouraged to submit their work to the repository, and all knowledge types are accepted (publications, reports, presentations, graphics, datasets, and more!). 

Why create a repository? Most publishers allow researchers to place their work into a subject matter repository for free after a period of time! This is called “green open access” and is a powerful options for scientists to share their work without paying OA fees. Have a closed article you’d like to add to the repository? Look up your journal here to see if you can make it open in this repository.

Want to help New Harvest support open access publishing?

Contribute to our new Open Access Fund and help support open access publishing at New Harvest. We hope to raise $22,000 in 2022 for this effort!

This fund ensures that all the work supported by New Harvest remains completely public and openly accessible. 100% of donations go to open access fees and our efforts to ensure that publicly funded research creates public knowledge.
Contribute to the Open Access Fund today!
Cellular agriculture will not be better for the world if the technology is overly privatized. A commitment to open is crucial to unlocking the benefits the cellular agriculture promises to have.

Say it with me: Public research for the public good!

Happy Open Access Week,
