Open Access Without Author-Facing Charges

Open Access Without Author-Facing Charges Online

The rise of open-access (OA) publishing is perhaps the largest shift in scholarly communications over the past two decades. Its path to ascendance, though, has been plagued by contradictions. A supposedly equitable mode in which readers do not have to pay, one of the main criticisms of OA has been the economic model of article and book processing charges, which displace responsibility onto authors, instead. In this talk, Martin Paul Eve will talk about the rise of fee-free models for open-access article and book publishing, now supported by a central coalition of funders. 

Martin Paul Eve is the Professor of Literature, Technology and Publishing at Birkbeck, University of London. He is the author of nine books and is well known for his work on open-access policy.
