In the transition from subscription-based journal publishing to open access (OA), how can the academic community ensure that the models used to fund OA journals are sustainable? With OA article processing charges creeping into the thousands of dollars, there’s a dire need to reign in publishing models that threaten to replace the serials crisis with an OA funding emergency. In this panel-style webinar, 3 leading OA experts who contributed to Scholastica's white paper "Democratizing Academic Journals: Technology, Services, and Open Access" will discuss their individual thoughts on the topics covered in the white paper.
