About

Nick Shockey began working with SPARC as an undergraduate at Trinity University where he passed a resolution supporting the Federal Research Public Access Act (FRPAA) through Trinity’s student government. He continued his efforts to support Open Access both nationally, aiding SPARC in its launch of the Right to Research student campaign, and locally, pushing for Open Access on Trinity’s campus. Nick was named a SPARC Innovator in 2007 for his work on student outreach and advocacy. In June of 2009, Nick joined SPARC and has since become SPARC’s Director of Student Advocacy and Director of the SPARC-sponsored Right to Research Coalition, a group of local, national, and international student organizations that advocate for students, researchers, universities, and governments to adopt more open scholarly publishing practices. Under Nick’s tenure, the coalition has grown from 6 members to over two dozen, representing over 5.5 million students, lobbied over 100 Congressional offices in support of FRPAA, and been awarded a grant to expand internationally by the Open Society Foundations.
