A look into closed access capitalism and LIS publishing practices
publishing, open access, librarianship
Drawing on data from an investigation of 127 academic, peer-reviewed journals in library and information science (LIS), this presentation will discuss ways that those working in LIS can take back control over how their work is disseminated and shared online. For this to happen, however, members of the profession need to recognize and consciously grapple with the ubiquitous capitalist system that informs so many of the services, functions, and expectations that are tied to the profession.
Presented on April 23, 2018 at the Politics of Libraries Conference at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, AB.
