Open Access Symposium 2016

The Center for Scholarly Communication, Stony Brook University Libraries presents Open Access, Global Access and Research Futures, the Open Access Symposium 2016.

When: Tuesday, October 25

Where: Wang Center, Stony Brook University

Registration is free and open!

Open Access, Global Access and Research Futures features visionary ideas from inspirational speakers. The symposium explores influential scholarly communication initiatives, including digital humanities, open educational resources (OER), open science and data visualization.   The symposium brings open access front and center, with presentations and discussions on its value and meaning for academics, researchers, and librarians.

Open Access literature is digital, online, free of charge, and free of most copyright and licensing restrictions. What it means to academia and research is that the primary barrier to access, price, is removed from the equation, allowing free access to peer-reviewed, scholarly works, books, and just about any other electronic print material with the designation.  Want to learn more? Here is a quick introduction to open access.
