Event Description

Brunel University London welcomes Martin Eve, founder of the Open Library of the Humanities.

The way in which researchers publish their work is undergoing a profound transformation. The introduction of digital technologies that shift the cost of publishing to the labour to first copy, rather than in the actual dissemination, changes the research-publication landscape.

Where previously scholars committed their work to journals that were printed and sold (to small audiences), with the advent of the internet and the world wide web comes the possibility of giving free access to anybody who is interested, not just to those who can pay.

The event will be livestreamed on periscope and we welcome attendance from outside the University. For more details and booking information, click here.
