On Wednesday 18th June, there will be an opportunity for Oxford academics and researchers to debate the issues around scholarly monographs and Open Access. Both publishers and funders will be in attendance, with speakers including Geoffrey Crossick (HEFCE project, Chair), Cecy Marden (Wellcome Trust), Frances Pinter (Knowledge Unlatched) and Rhodri Jackson (OUP; OAPEN-UK project). At the end of the forum there will be a Questions and Answers panel joined by Sally Rumsey (Oxford Research Archive), which should provide for further discussion of the current challenges and initiatives in Open Access monograph publishing. It is anticipated that the dialogue of the forum will feed into HEFCE’s Monographs and Open Access project.
The event will be held at the Radcliffe Humanities Lecture Room between 2-5:30pm. All are welcome, but booking is advised. For further details on the forum and securing your place, see the poster below or visit http://courses.it.ox.ac.uk/detail/TZ005.
