Abstract (summary)
Open access (OA) publishing has come a long way, but is not without its faults. The past year has seen some major advancements but also some critical downfalls concerning efforts to make research more openly available to the public online. During this session we’ll discuss what the future holds for OA based on recent developments—from mega journals to preprint servers to so-called “predatory” publications--and review library services in place to help faculty and students navigate this complex, shifting world of academic publishing as we celebrate the 10th annual International Open Access Week.
