Breaking Down Paywalls and Building Up Equity: Open Access, Open Science, and Connections to Inclusive Knowledge
Join us to hear a live, moderated discussion with two experts who will provide a broad overview of the many reasons why open access and open science are beneficial and ethical in scholarly communication. The panelists will also touch upon the ways that inequity affects BIPOC and women scholars throughout the scholarly communication life cycle. They will affirm the impact of “green open access” approaches and the ways in which open access models are changing to become more equitable and inclusive for members of the scholarly community.
