Friday 27 October, 9:00 – 13:15
Seminar Room 1, Hauser Forum
This session offers the chance to learn about available resources and options in publishing and reviewing in the STEM disciplines, and ask questions of the experts. If you are already using these resources user support will be available.
We will explore:
- The rise of DIY Open Access Journals – why and how? (Brian Cody, Scholastica CEO and Co-Founder)
- independent and not-for-profit media outlet The Conversation (Miriam Frankel)
- local solutions with Cambridge University Press
- Aperta and changing the way we publish with PLOS (Nicola Stead)
Morning refreshments and lunch will be provided at both events, during which time you can speak to providers for information and user support.
