Although the idea of something being “open access” is easily understandable, the vast and complex array of initiatives, licenses, and terminology may not be. For instance, what is meant by a “read and publish agreement”? What is a “hybrid journal”? Who or what is “Beall’s list”? What is “Plan S”? This webinar will present a primer on open access for early career professionals and anyone else new to the field who may have questions (but were afraid to ask). Join us to hear from a knowledgeable slate of publishing professionals to learn more about open access, including its history, important terminology, and influence on the present and future of scholarly publishing. A Q&A segment will follow the three presentations. Seriously, don’t be afraid to ask!
