Conversations About Our Scholarly Lives

12:00 PM  - 1:00 PM
Monday Nov 26, 2012
Jan Serie Center for Scholarship and Teaching (Room 338), DeWitt Wallace Library

Terri Fishel and Ginny Heinrich, DeWitt Wallace Library, will present “Sustainability and Scholarly Journals – Knowing Your Rights as Authors is One Way to Help Improve the Status Quo."  Two events in 2012 – a boycott of Elsevier, a major publisher of scientific journals, and a Harvard Faculty Advisory Council memorandum on the unsustainability of current journal pricing -- have increased faculty awareness of the need to address the cost structure of the scholarly publishing system.  Fishel and Heinrich will discuss how and why the Elsevier boycott and Harvard memo have an impact on your publications and more importantly, they will share steps you can take to control the distribution of your scholarship, including open access fees, contract addenda, options for distributing your work and retaining rights to your intellectual property.  All faculty welcome.  Lunch will be provided.
