University-community partnerships and open access in urban planning education and research Ngo, Victor D.


Open access scholarship can play an important role in enhancing university-community partnerships, particularly in the field of community planning. Planning students are often engaged in projects of reciprocal learning and development in local, regional, and international communities. Open access and the dissemination of collaborative research can serve as a rich asset for communities. This presentation will cover three mini-case studies where research at the UBC School of Community and Regional Planning (SCARP) and open access are playing a role in university-community partnerships: UBC’s University Neighbourhoods Association, Vancouver’s False Creek South, and the Bulacan Province, Philippines. Presented at Open Access Week, October 28-29, 2014
