Traditional scholarly communication publishing practices have limited who has access to academic research and also requires that authors transfer the ownerships rights of their work to commercial publishers. The Open Access publishing movement seeks to remedy these challenges. Join Donald Williams, Copyright and Scholarly Communications Manager, in a presentation discussing what the Open Access movement is, and how it makes scholarly content openly accessible to all and allows authors the ability to retain ownership of their work. This presentation will also discuss the role of repositories, including Ball State’s Cardinal Scholar institutional repository, in helping to make scholarly research openly accessible online.
This event is a part of the Friends of the Alexander M. Bracken Library Virtual Lunch and Learn Series. The event is free and open to the public.
