This session will examine collaboration between three important stakeholders in the open access process: author, library and publisher. We will provide an overview of the open access landscape as it currently stands, the publishing models available and drivers of OA, as well as addressing how the dynamic between library, researcher and publisher is impacted by the rise of open access research.
Carolyn Kirby (Taylor & Francis), will provide a publisher perspective, including examples of how we have worked with libraries and researchers to advance open access. David Walters (Brunel University Library) will complement this with the perspective of the library, sharing experiences on how they have implemented procedures and services in response to the shift towards OA. Dr Christopher Daley (Brunel University Academic) will give an insight into how the evolving scholarly publishing landscape is benefiting his research and teaching activities.
We hope that this one hour session will shed light on the many ways that all three parties can collaborate and work together to ensure that open access thrives within UK academic community in the future.
