BMC Medicine has recently published this study on open access publishing. As a follow-up to this we are having a one hour twitter chat with the authors (Mikael Laakso and Bo-Christer Björk) on 26th October at 12pm UK time.
The questions we’ll be asking during the chat are:
Q1 – What are the main factors that have led to the steady growth of OA publishing?
Q2 – How do you think this trend will develop over the next decade, and explain why?
Q3 – What challenges does the growth of OA publishing face in ensuring that it reaches its full potential?
Q4 – Where will the funding for OA publishing come from?
Q5 – Do subscription journals offer benefits that OA journals do not?
