Oct. 21 webcast to focus on scholarly communication, open access

How is the impact of scholarly communication measured in the world of open access publishing?  Murphy Library kicks off International Open Access Week  with internationally-recognized experts discussing that topic. The discussion is from 2-3 p.m. Monday, Oct. 21, in 121 Murphy Library and will be webcast concurrently with events taking place at the World Bank in Washington, D.C. A question-and-answer session runs from 3-3:30 p.m. The webcast is sponsored by The Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition and the World Bank. Speakers include:

This program is recommended for faculty and staff, graduate students, and others involved with scholarly research and publishing. Open access refers specifically to scholarly output in digital format being freely accessible to the public via the Internet. This free access is a direct result of authors or copyright-holders consenting to offer their scholarly output free of most copyright and licensing restrictions. Authors, however, continue to have control over the integrity of their work and the right to be properly acknowledged and cited. Through such consent, barriers to the dissemination of and access to information are reduced, resulting in more open and clear scholarly communication. For more information, contact Digital Collections/University Repository Librarian David Mindel  at or 608.785.8945.
