Event Description

Join us for a screening of Paywall: The Business of Scholarship (description below). The screening will include free pizza and be followed by a Q and A with the documentary's producer/director, Jason Schmitt.

Paywall: The Business of Scholarship is a documentary which focuses on the need for open access to research and science, questions the rationale behind the $25.2 billion a year that flows into for-profit academic publishers, examines the 35-40% profit margin associated with the top academic publisher Elsevier and looks at how that profit margin is often greater than some of the most profitable tech companies like Apple, Facebook, and google.
