Choosing Pathways to Open Access and the UC San Diego Library.Having come from the Choosing Pathways to Open Access working forum held at UC Berkeley, we will outline what the library is currently involved in and the intended path forward. The library seeks faculty input into what sort of publishing decisions would you choose so that we may use our resources and develop our services that we can actively support the full scholarly communication lifecycle of UC San Diego researchers and scholars.
Next Steps for Open Access: From What and Why, to How?Open Access is no longer the radical proposition that it was once believed to be. In 2018 there is no major publisher NOT doing a significant amount of open access publishing. This presentation will (1) illustrate why and how OA is simply an established, and growing, way of publishing and disseminating journals, and (2) inspire you to engage with open access as an author, as an editor, and/or simply as an informed member of the scholarly community. It will cover existing projects to transition or flip journals from the subscription model to open access, coordinated by UC's Office of Scholarly Communication, and give relevant updates on the activities of UC Press in both OA publishing and open source knowledge production.
Speaker: Dan Morgan, Publisher at the University of California Press. Dan has responsibility for the Press’ non-traditional journals program. This program includes the OA journals, Collabra: Psychology, Civic Sociology, Elementa: Science of the Anthropocene, and also the non-OA Case Studies in the Environment and Global Perspectives—with more to come.
