Open Access Week 2023 - Open Access Panel Discussion: Short Form Publications

Open Access Week 2023 - Open Access Panel Discussion: Short Form Publications Online

Join the University of Derby and the University of Essex as we celebrate Open Access Week 2023! 

Open Access publishing has come a long way in recent years, especially in the academic journal space, but has this now become the norm or is there still work to do to fully embrace the movement to ensure equitable access for all? What are the challenges that the global research community still faces and how can these be overcome? The resurgence of Green Open Access and Institutional Rights Retention policies allow authors and universities to take back some of the power from the large academic publishers, but does Green provide a sustainable future for Open Access, or should our efforts be more focused on Diamond Open Access?  

Come along to this panel discussion which will focus on Open Access publishing and short form output types. During the session, we will hear from expert speakers who will discuss their experiences of publishing Open Access, how Rights Retention empowers author choice, and where we might be headed for the future.
