    Marco Oliverio was born in Rome on October 31st 1964, and received a PhD in Evolutionary Biology in 1994. He is currently Professor of Zoology and of Systematic Biology at Sapienza University of Rome, where he is also Head of the Department of Biology and Biotechnologies “Charles Darwin”, and Deputy Rector to Quality and Enhancement of Research. His research is centred on Evolutionary Biology with a focus on the patterns and dynamics of biodiversity, and on the evolutionary processes, and marine molluscs as the preferred experimental model.His research activities span from data and sample collecting in the field, to the work in a molecular systematics lab, eventually to data analysis in a bioinformatics framework. He has participated in and/or organized dozens of collecting expeditions at many distinct localities (from the SW Pacific to the Indian Ocean, from the Mediterranean Sea to the Antarctic), shore-based and on-board international research vessels, logging more than 2000 scientific SCUBA dives. He has published over 160 scientific papers (mostly on molluscs, but also on insects and vertebrates).

    Title: Implementing open access in a big general university: a bottom up process
    Abstract: Sapienza policy for Open Access has been approved in February 2020 after a bottom up process of awareness and design that involved all relevant stakeholders. The aim of such a policy is to promote open access to scientific literature to improve its visibility, increase its impact and communicate knowledge and scientific advances to civil society. To this regard, and in a University of very large size, like Sapienza, a relevant role is played by the interaction among different university facilities: the institutional repository for publications, the university press and the librarian system.
