Publish and perish?: Exploring scholarly publication practices in a shifting communications landscape
The Research, Collections and Scholarly Communications Unit of Syracuse University Library will present a brown bag seminar at noon on Monday, Oct. 19, in support of International Open Access Week.
Members of the campus community are invited to drop by the Peter Graham Scholarly Commons in E.S. Bird Library and be part of a discussion with campus peers on new models for getting academic work seen and read. The session will include discussion of the risks and costs associated with traditional scholarly publishing.
Can open access journals, online publication repositories and the like offer you more flexible publishing opportunities—and provide greater impact at the same time? How does more conventional publishing interact with the rapidly changing online social network technologies embraced by your students? When you license your publications, do you find the licensing agreement to be a solution or a straitjacket? And how do you tell one from the other?
Beverages and snacks will be provided; attendees may also feel free to bring their own lunch.
