It’s an Open World: A Round Table Event
For more than 300 years, scholarly articles were locked in journals, accessible only to those with access to the print, and more recently digital, editions. Now authors, readers, journal editors, and publishers face expectations for articles and the supporting data to be open and easily accessible to all.
Open Access and its numerous business models have dominated much of the dialogue in scholarly publishing the past few years. Drawing on the experience of participants, SSP Philly seeks to uncover best practices and what to expect with new OA dynamics.
Philadelphia has a long history of publishing. Come learn from your colleagues’ experiences, ideas, and recommendations about this new open world. Begin the evening by mingling over food and drink, and then rotating into 30-minute group discussions across four roundtables, choosing from the following topics:
- Plan S & Transformative Agreements
- Data Sharing Policies & Tools
- Preprint Repositories & Academic Social Networking Sites
- Open Access in the Social Sciences and Humanities
We look forward to lively and informative discussions!
