First session in our Open Access Week series

 

Presenter: Clayton Hayes

 

The Open Access (OA) movement was originally intended to push back against high subscription costs of scholarly journals and came to be seen as a way to increase equity in the world of scholarly publishing. Instead, it has instead been co-opted by for-profit academic publishers to extract ever-larger sums from researchers and institutions. By discussing the parallel development of library OA and for-profit OA, I hope to contextualize Article Processing Charges and Read-and-Publish Agreements as “Open Access” systems which preserve the status quo (in favor of for-profit publishers) and reinforce existing inequities. This presentation is intended for a librarian audience, however, all who may have interest in learning more about open access and equity are welcome to attend
