Event Description

FilmScene (118 East College Street, Iowa City, IA 52240)

UI Libraries is hosting a free screening of the new documentary, "Paywall: The Business of Scholarship," which focuses on the need for open access to research and science, questions the rationale behind the $25.2 billion a year that flows into for-profit academic publishers, examines the 35-40% profit margin associated with the top academic publisher Elsevier and looks at how that profit margin is often greater than some of the most profitable tech companies like Apple, Facebook and Google. Everyone is invited!
