Project Description: Create games about OA that appeal to authors.
- Creating a series of engaging games to introduce OA and copyright topics to unfamiliar audiences. Possible first topic: navigating publication contracts.
- Target audience is primarily undergraduates and others unfamiliar with beginning concepts and the purpose and importance of OA.
- OA and copyright are important but complicated topics, which can have a high barrier to entry and engagement. We're attempting to provide a starting place to pique new interest and teach basic concepts in an entertaining and unintimidating way.
