Imaging Neuroscience & community over commercialization: An OA week panel
Join MIT Libraries and the MIT Press for an online panel with the editor of Imaging Neuroscience, a new open access journal that launched after editorial teams from two Elsevier journals left the publisher over disputes around the high cost for authors.
We’ll explore some of the benefits and challenges of moving a journal from a large, commercial publisher to a non-profit university press, and how the new journal better prioritizes the interests of this community.
The webinar is part of MIT's celebration of Open Access Week, whose theme this year asks us to think about what's lost when a shrinking number of corporations control knowledge production rather than researchers themselves.
