Profits, Predators and Prestige: Understanding the modern academic publishing ecosystem

While scholars have autonomy over where and how they publish, their decisions are often heavily influenced by disciplinary norms, funder obligations and even departmental expectations. This session will cover some of the broader trends having an impact on scholarly communications and invite attendees to situate their individual practices within the larger ecosystem of academic publishing.

Topics covered will include:

  • the economics of contemporary academic publishing

  • the rise of open access publishing and its impact on the publishing ecosystem

  • innovations in research dissemination including pre-prints and repositories 

  • prestige in academic publishing  

This session is primarily intended for graduate students.
