What are the risks of publishing in an open access journal and what must be done to combat predatory OA publishing? Will OA publishing eventually supplant the traditional scholarly publishing model?
The nationally ranked GMU Forensics Team takes on these questions and more at this year’s roundtable discussion, “Open or Not? What You Need to Know About Open Access to Research.” Join this event, hosted by the University Libraries and the Department of Communication, to hear our student panelists discuss the challenges, merits, and future of open access publishing. The event will be held on Wednesday, October 23, 2013, 12:00 – 1:15 pm in George’s on the third floor of the Johnson Center. A Q&A will follow the discussion. Light refreshments will be served.
Featured speakers are Amelia Martin, civil engineering major; AK Komanduri, government and international politics major; Ian Birdwell, government and international politics major; Joseph Dineen, graduate student in political science; and Rob Warchol, graduate student in Middle East and Islamic studies.
