Open Access Week 2023 - Open Access Books: Panel Discussion

Open Access Week 2023 - Open Access Books: Panel Discussion Online

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

The Open Access book movement has seen considerable development in recent years with real benefits for society such as increased access and usage across all disciplines and across disadvantaged countries and continents. However, providing Open Access to books remains a challenge. So, what do we need to do as a community to address these challenges and provide access to all? Come along and ask the experts! 

Join us for a lively panel discussion which will focus on Open Access publishing and long form output types. During the session, we will hear from expert speakers who will discuss the traditional side of academic publishing in the scholarly monograph/book space and how this has evolved into a need for Open Access to fulfil the needs of the global research community and the public at large.  


Dr. David Barker - Senior Lecturer in Publishing, University of Derby. 

Dr. Joe Deville - Senior Lecturer, Department of Organisation, Work & Technology, Department of Sociology, Lancaster University and Managing Director of the Open Book Collective. Joe is also the Principal Investigator on Open Book Futures, a research project co-funded by Arcadia and the Research England Development Fund. 

Professor Jose Prados - Head of the School of Psychology, University of Derby. 

Raluca Soreanu - Professor of Psychoanalytic Studies at the Department of Psychosocial and Psychoanalytic Studies, University of Essex and psychoanalyst, member of the Círculo Psicanalítico do Rio de Janeiro.

The event is open to everyone, and attendees are encouraged to sign up and engage in the discussion! For more information about Open Access and Open Research, please see the University of Derby's Open Research SharePoint pages and the Library's information on Open Research at the University of Essex.
