The Changing Scholarly Communication Landscape - An Overview
Faculty Open Access Symposium
When you publish, are you signing away your rights to use your own
work? What happens to your data when your research project is finished?
How does the “Harvard mandate” really work? What is an institutional
repository and what kinds of things should it contain? What are some of
the new models for publishing your research? What exactly does “open
access” mean and why should you care?
These and many other questions were addressed April 8th at the Open Access Symposium when invited speakers from Harvard University, Boston University, and University of Massachusetts - Amherst discussed issues surrounding open access and the changing scholarly communication landscape. This event was co-sponsored by the University Library and the Faculty Senate Library Committee.
Video recordings of this event, along with speakers’ slides, are now available.
