In the frame of ICN2 Open Access Week 2021 Organised by ICN2 Strategy Development
Paywall: The Business of Scholarship is a documentary which focuses on the need for open access to research and science. The film questions the rationale behind the $25.2 billion a year that flows into for-profit academic publishers and examines the 35-40% profit margin associated with the top academic publisher, Elsevier.
Acknowledgement of a situation is part of the solution to any issue. As part of the Open Access Week, the ICN2 invites you to better acknowledge this situation in science and to debate how we, as a research community, can be part of a better distribution of knowledge and the funds devoted to its creation.
Join a discussion about the need for open access to research and science with invited speakers:
Chair of the Session: Núria Benítez, ICN2 Institutional Strategy Development and Open Science committee chair
