Introduction to Open Access
October 21 - 11:00 am (Strozier 005A)
Contact: Josh Bolick
Scholarly publishing is growing and evolving in many ways. The aim of this workshop is to provide an overview of the principle of Open Access, that publicly funded scholarly works should be accessible to the public. The session will offer some basic ideas on open access, how it plays out on a university campus and how it fits with peer-review, tenure and promotion and prestige in publishing.
