OPEN ACCESS: THE FUTURE OF ACADEMIC PUBLICATION?
ACLAIIR AGM & Seminar 2014
The ACLAIIR AGM & Seminar 2014 will take place in Cambridge on Tuesday, 17 June 2014, and we have an exciting programme lined up on the theme of Open Access. Open Access is curently a hot topic across the globe due to its wide-ranging effects. Many policies and practices are in a state of rapid change, so we hope you will join us to keep up to date with this important subject and contribute to the debate.
For our first panel we have speakers from the world of mainstream academic publishing – Cambridge University Press – as well as the independent Open Book Publishers. We’re also pleased to welcome representatives from OAPEN-UK, the JISC and AHRC funded collaborative research project on OA. The second panel includes researchers who are all engaging in different ways with Open Access, becoming involved with OA groups, writing about OA and developing OA projects.
