Emerging Perspectives in Open Access Book Publishing Gatti, Rupert; Bowers, Katherine; Brand, Megan; Turin, Mark; Crema, Leonora


Open Access monograph publishing is a rapidly expanding and evolving strategy for making scholarly work globally accessible. Universities, academic publishers, libraries, and scholarly organizations are developing new initiatives, partnerships, services, and business models to support open access options for authors of scholarly monographs, textbooks, and academic books. This event will explore the opportunities, challenges, and experiences of OA book publishing from the perspective of authors, series editors and publishers. You are invited to join a panel discussion of UBC faculty and publishers that will address their motivations for “going open”, as well as the processes, impacts, and changes that OA is bringing to academic book publishing.
