Scholarly Publishing Round-up November 2016 from Becker Medical Library

I expect this will be a very valuable future event: Livestream panel, Thursday, November 17 from 10 a.m.-12 noon CST, part of Envisioning a World Beyond APCs/BPCs [Article/Book Processing/Publishing Charges] symposium During the broadcast, panelists will describe their vision for an open access future. Panelists, local respondents and the global viewing audience will engage together in thought-provoking dialogue to address one of the most fundamental questions in the open access movement: To what extent can a global academic community create an open access publishing system that is without costs to readers or authors? #KUOASymp16 on Twitter Symposium website I will share the recording at as soon as I get it.
