Open Access (OA) publishing models have been building momentum for the past 20 years with far reaching impacts on scholarly communication. A new study finds that 31% of journal articles are currently published OA and those articles attract more than half of article viewership. OA changes where we find and read scholarship, how we evaluate its impact, and how we fund publishing. This presentation will discuss trends and potential futures in OA publishing, with time for discussion and questions.

Feel free to bring lunch. Light refreshments will be served.

UNH Innovations

4:30 PM - 5:30 PM

For October’s seminar, we've invited Chris Harris and Jen Goodrich from Copyright Clearance Center (CCC) to share their expertise and experience in Open Access (OA) – freely available, digital, online information. Jen is Director of Product Management and Publisher Solutions at CCC and Chris serves as Legal Counsel. CCC provides collective copyright licensing services for corporate and academic users of copyrighted materials.

OA is a newer form of scholarly publishing that is of interest to many in academia, but researchers often struggle with the decision of whether to publish in OA journals versus traditional journals. In this seminar, Chris and Jen will provide a general overview of OA, including the benefits and challenges of publishing in the OA space, and will discuss recent trends. They will also take a deeper dive into the subject to compare OA publishing in humanities and social sciences versus STEM research, and how it might affect funding.
