Event Description

On Tuesday, October 23, 2012, 10am, in the EUC Claxton Room, the Faculty Senate Scholarly Communications Committee and the University Libraries will sponsor a faculty forum on open access publishing in the tenure and promotion process.  Currently, there are more than 30,000 open-access peer-reviewed journals published worldwide, and in lieu of a subscription-based business model, many open access journals require authors to pay article processing fees.  Such fees are common in some disciplines, especially science, technology, and medicine; however, they are less common in the social sciences and humanities.  How faculty members perceive open access publishing and article processing fees frequently depends on their discipline and their own publishing experience.  Which raises the question, in the tenure and promotion process, how should faculty works published in open access journals be viewed?  Are they equivalent to works published in traditional subscription-based journals?  Join us for a panel of UNCG faculty who will discuss their experiences with open access publishing, including observations about open access publishing in the tenure and promotion process.  The panelists are:

 

Paige Hall Smith, Public Health Education and The Center for Women’s Health & Wellness,

author of a recent article in International Breastfeeding Journal, an open access journal, and the recipient of the fourth grant ($1,000) from UNCG’s Open Access Publishing Support Fund

 

Spoma Jovanovic, Communication Studies, Editor of Partnerships: A Journal of Service-Learning and Civic Engagement, an open access journal published by UNCG using Open Journal Systems (OJS) software

 

Robert Stavn, Biology, author of a recent article in Optics Express, an open access journal, and the recipient of the first grant ($1,000) from UNCG’s Open Access Publishing Support Fund

 

Bill Karper, Kinesiology, a member of the Faculty Senate Scholarly Communications Committee
