Open Access Publishing Roadshow

Disruptive Media Learning Lab

Wednesday, 5 November 2014 from 12:00 to 14:00 (GMT)

Coventry, United Kingdom

You are warmly invited by the Disruptive Media Learning Lab to join us for the Open Access Publishing Roadshow’s appearance in Coventry this November. The DMLL is hosting and have helped organise this event, which is part of a larger series of OA Roadshow events put together by SPARC Europe and Alma Swan and made possible through funding from the Open Society Foundations

See the full programme of roadshows here.

With Open Access now firmly on the agenda of HEFCE and RCUK in the lead up to REF2020, this is an ideal opportunity to learn more about Open Access publishing with several publishers and facilitators coming to the event.

All academics/practitioners/researchers working in arts and humanities fields are invited to come along and meet their publisher colleagues in an informal tell-and-show session. You will be able to see what their publishing programmes cover and learn about the experiences of authors who have published in Open Access outlets.

There will be short presentations from Prof. Gary Hall, Dr Rupert Gatti and Jonathan Shaw with the opportunity to speak with them to find out more about the implications and practicalities of open access publishing.
