Why Can’t Scholarship Be Free?

This presentation looks at models of open access scholarly publishing and examines the costs
and value of such publication models for scholars, journals, libraries, and universities. We’ll 
address some of the persistent questions and myths about open access publishing (Is it “predatory”? 
Is it “self-publishing”? Is it peer-reviewed?) and look at how various disciplines have embraced it 
as a model of scholarly dissemination.

Event Date: Tuesday, November 13th, 2:00 to 3:30 pm.
