Open Research Conversation: The Future of Publishing
28 October @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pmFree
From Open Access to pre-registration, publishing is changing. This session asks what could scholarly publishing look like in the future?
This Open Access Week event will explore how scholarly publishing might evolve in the future given the growth of open access, preprints, preregistration and the sharing of a wider variety of research outputs.
The discussion will begin with Lotty Brand, Psychology, who will first lay out problems with the current publishing model and suggest what an alternative model could look like. We will then have a talk from Alex Freeman, Executive Director of Winton Centre for Risk & Evidence Communication, Cambridge and the founder of Octopus Publishing – a radical new approach to publishing.
These will be followed by an extended discussion of how we would like scholarly publishing to look in the future, so please come along with your ideas, questions and suggestions!
