Description

The rise of electronic publication has irrevocably transformed the ways we share research with colleagues. We are now able to share our research faster and more cheaply than ever before. However, although the electronic dissemination of research allows us to dispense with materials, printing, and distribution costs, the prices of many scholarly journals have skyrocketed. This situation creates barriers between your research and the researchers who need access to your work. Scholarly Communication Librarian, Andrew Wesolek, will explore the response to this crisis in scholarly communication; specifically, Open Access publication models. The presentation will cover the basics of Open Access, why it is necessary, and how it is transforming scholarly communication.

Light Refreshments will be provided.
