Event Description

This documentary, produced and directed by Jason Schmitt, 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 30-40% 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.
