OA or No Way: Academic Publishing as Anti-Neo-Liberal Activism.
“…. As publisher for the American Numismatic Society (ANS) and for the American School of Classical Studies at Athens (ASCSA), I learned a few things about Open Access (OA): published scholarship should be made available online at no charge to the readers; OA publication of research does not hurt a publisher’s bottom line; the more research that is published as OA in a sustainable way, the more value that research has for linking across disciplines. This talk will demonstrate what the ANS has done (and is doing) regarding Open Access publication, placing its research in the public domain while not charging authors and readers. This liberal stance in sharing research serves as activism, which combats predatory publishers while demonstrating through practice how to make research available without losing money, and building a brand of cooperation between authors, readers, libraries, and publisher.”
There will be coffee.
