Full text not available from this repository.


Dr Romina Istratii presented on the topic of decolonising research at the AHRC Research Libraries UK – Research Catalyst Cohort Programme organised by UK’s Association of Research Managers and Administrators (ARMA). The presentation discussed the importance of applying a decolonial lens to research practices and norms, problematising the centrality of positionality in such efforts. It also described current approaches within and beyond the Higher Education sector to make research processes and practices more reflexive of colonial legacies and continuing inequalities, build more genuinely collaborative partnerships with partners in the wider Global South and promote linguistic and cultural diversity within academic knowledge production. Dr Istratii placed extensive attention also on open access publishing movements and discussed how open access science and publishing can be conducive to and limiting in these efforts.
