OA Advocates Weigh in on Democratization of Academic Journals

In this free webinar on demand, 3 leading OA experts deliberate what’s needed to make OA journal publishing financially and structurally sustainable.

About The Webinar

In the transition from subscription-based journal publishing to open access (OA), how can the academic community ensure that the models used to fund OA journals are sustainable?

With OA article processing charges creeping into the thousands of dollars, there’s a dire need to reign in publishing models that threaten to replace the serials crisis with an OA funding emergency. In this panel-style webinar, 3 leading OA experts who contributed to Scholastica’s white paper “
Democratizing Academic Journals: Technology, Services, and Open Access” will discuss their individual thoughts on the topics covered in the white paper.

Panelists will speak on:

The sustainability of current OA journal publishing approaches
Possibilities and challenges surrounding democratizing OA journal publishing
How to determine structurally and financially sound OA journal models
The roles of nonprofit organizations and scholars in facilitating sustainable OA
