Understanding Copyright and Open Access in Modern Scholarly Publishing

The Faculty Senate Scholarly Communications Forum will be held on October 28 from 3:30 – 5 p.m. in the EUC Alexander Room.

There are many reasons why faculty and researchers publish their work:

  •        to share their discoveries
  •        to make an impact in their field
  •        to meet institutional and professional expectations
  •        to foster learning and discovery

How these objectives are achieved is affected by where you publish and the agreements you enter into with publishers about the ownership and use of your intellectual output.

Come join guest speaker Christine Fruin, J.D., MSLIS from the University of Florida to gain a better understanding of the legal relationships between author, publisher and reader and how to better preserve the rights not only of information producers but also information consumers through licensing and open access. This talk will also explore how quality and impact is measured in the modern scholarly publishing system and the new ways for discovering and distributing scholarship.
