Next WP Event: Open Access and Alternative Publishing Models

The Washington Publishers October event will be a discussion about Open Access. Previous debates have focused on ways to pay for the open access (are subscription models viable?). However, given the direction the industry has been heading, it might be beneficial to approach it from a different direction—not “do we have to change our business model” but rather “how do we make it economically viable.”

The guest speakers will be Terry Ehling (Associate Director at Project MUSE and previously Cornell University’s Scholarly Publishing Strategist) and Terry Monahan (previously senior editorial management at McGraw-Hill medical publications and the Public Library of Science).
