The Library will host a viewing of the live streamed conversation titled "Envisioning a World Beyond APCs (Article Processing Charges)".
Kevin L. Smith, dean of KU Libraries, will moderate the live-streamed conversation on Thursday, November 17, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. EST. By streaming part of the symposium, the organizers hope to engage a broad international audience in a lively discussion. During the broadcast, panellists will describe their vision for an open access future. Panellists, local respondents, and the global viewing audience will be able to engage together in thought-provoking dialog to address one of the most fundamental questions in the open access movement currently: To what extent can a global academic community create an open access publishing system that is without costs to readers or authors. Watch the livestream and participate via Twitter using #KUOASymp16.
Presented by the University of Kansas Libraries, Open Access Network (a project of K|N Consultants), Allen Press, and SPARC.
