ARL Webinar Series: Reshaping Scholarly Communication

Part 3b: Transitioning from Subscriptions to Open Access: Article Processing Fees and Combined Licensing/Author’s Rights Approaches
Tuesday July 27, 11am-12:00pm, Rm 102, Murray Library

The Directory of Open Access Journals currently lists more than 4,000 fully open-access, peer-reviewed scholarly journals, and the growth rate averages about two titles per day–this without any comprehensive, concerted approach to shifting funding from subscriptions to support for open access! Libraries are beginning the process of piloting approaches to providing economic support for open access, ranging from payment of article processing fees to combining licensing subscriptions with authors’ rights or other open-access approaches. Program 3B presents participants with an opportunity to learn from the leaders in this field.
Scheduled Speakers
• Ivy Anderson, Director, Digital Collection & Management, California Digital Library
• Barbara DeFelice, Director, Digital Resources Program, Dartmouth College
• Andrew Waller, Licensing & Negotiating Librarian, Library & Cultural Resources, University of Calgary
