Open Access Community Events
PKP International Scholarly Publishing Conference
2 August @ 8:00 am - 4 August @ 5:00 pmVariable
The conference will address issues of community voice, ownership, and control as it relates to open access publishing, global knowledge creation and sharing, open educational resources, citizen rights, scholars as publishers, and open source technologies. It will explore the power of community-based approaches and invites critiques of the pervasiveness of commercial publishing models (including APCs to fund open access), closed third-party systems and software, corporate concentration of scholarly publishing services, and the general ephemerality of the Web in the academic sphere.
