To celebrate Open Access Week, Cook Library staff will be holding a open viewing of the webinar, “Faculty Perspectives on Publishing Open Access.”

Tuesday, October 20th
Cook Library Room 505D
2pm 

Description:

Reports find that perceptions of OA publishing are changing for the better and as a result, many faculty members seek out OA publications for maximum access and impact. However, other researchers continue to avoid it, and those who are early in their careers still aren’t sure how to fit it in their publishing priorities. In this one-hour webinar, three faculty members will discuss why researchers do – or do not – publish in open access outlets and how they look to librarians for support in this process.

Presenters:

  • Dr. Alan Daly, Chair and Professor of the Department of Education Studies at the University of California, San Diego, will discuss how open access publishing is the best option for the individual researcher and the research community as a whole.
  • Dr. Bruce Herbert, Professor of Geology and Director of the Office of Scholarly Communications at Texas A&M University, will discuss why researchers at his institution avoid open access outlets for publishing research and why subscription-based journals remain the best option for many.
  • Dr. Shannon Audley-Piotrowski, Assistant Professor of Educational Psychology at Smith College, will discuss publishing priorities for early-career researchers.
  • David Ross, Executive Publisher of Open Access at SAGE, will moderate the panel and take Q&A from webinar attendees.
