This is an external event hosted by the University of British Columbia.
Open access publishing is a rapidly expanding and evolving strategy for making scholarly work globally accessible. Unlike the traditional scholarly publishing model under which publishers require institutions or individuals to pay for access to these materials, open access provides a model for freely available research outputs to the general public for viewing, and often for reuse.
There is a great deal of activity in Canada that has advanced open access nationally, including publishing bodies and initiatives, and national granting opportunities and requirements. This event will explore opportunities and challenges from the perspective of two significant open access publishing initiatives, the University of Calgary Press and Coalition Publica.
You are invited to join a panel discussion with Brian Scrivener (University of Calgary Press) and Jessica Clark (Coalition Publica) that will address advancements and setbacks for open access publishing in Canada.
