"Go Open Access"- Film Series

To promote understanding of Open Access, the information platform openaccess.net initiated a series of short films. In a charming and humorous manner, the value chain of academic publishing and the principles of Open Access are explained. The films (sponsored by the German Research Foundation, DFG) are in German and in English and will be gradually published on openaccess.net’s YouTube channel. Have fun and help spread the word!

Open access: definitions and major initiatives

Open access: definitions and major initiatives is an early draft of a chapter (or part of a chapter) of my thesis. Designed as a basic overview, this is an updated and revised version of the open access chapter of my book Scholarly Communication for Librarians (Oxford: Chandos, 2009). The early release is part of my open thesis approach, and also to make this chapter freely available online to students of my UBC SLAIS classes this spring, LIBR 559L (scholarly communication) and LIBR 559K (open access), for whom this is required reading. This is actually a second revision, as another version is currently under review as part of a book project for the ALCTS section of ALA (eds. Pamela Bluh and Cindy Hepfer). The original chapter can be viewed in E-LIS.
