Learn about the motivations behind going an open access route and what’s involved in managing an open access journal. Martina Droth is Deputy Director of Research and Curator of Sculpture at the Yale Center for British Art. She is co-editor of the born-digital, peer-reviewed journal British Art Studies and chair of the Association of Research Institutes in Art History. Helen Beilinson is a PhD candidate in Immunobiology at Yale and a co-editor-in-chief of the Yale Journal of Biology and Medicine. YJBM was launched in 1928 and is the oldest medical student publication still published.

October 23, 2017, 12:00 – 1:00 PM
Bass Library Classroom L01 A/B
Getting an article or a book published is an exciting undertaking that may present its share of confusion and stress. We will compare an assortment of publishing options, including open access, to make authors aware of your choices. We’ll also cover author-publisher agreements, the SPARC author addendum, and licensing alternatives. You will come away with facts that you can use to make informed decisions about your rights. The workshop is presented by librarians Joan Emmet and Alyssa Grimshaw. Register Online: http://schedule.yale.edu/event/3651243
