Open Chat - Challenges in Open Access

 

Open access is a movement that supports the free availability of literature to the global community by making the outputs of knowledge production available on the public web. This not only supports users’ ability to read, search, and distribute full-text content but also institutions, like the academy, to provide access without the financial, legal, and technical barriers associated with publishing bodies.  

While open access provides a number of benefits, both to academics and the broader community, there are many challenges that impact moving forward on the open access agenda.

Join Mark Turin, Associate Professor, UBC Institute for Critical Indigenous Studies & Department of Anthropology. Author of Ownership, Control, Access & Possession in Open Access Humanities Publishing, in a discussion of the challenges related to open access. 

A link to the online session details will be sent 3 hours before the event.
