Description

The current system of scholarly publication, communication and evaluation is evolving in significant ways. We will explore how the traditional system of scholarly publication serves faculty and students poorly, and ways in which the Open Access movement is providing new opportunities to expand the reach of scholarship, build faculty reputations, and provide new metrics of evaluation. Distributing your work as open access need not be difficult or time consuming, and your library can help. Join us for a discussion of how you can benefit from participating in the Open Access movement.
