Free Webinar: How to Start or Flip an Open Access Journal

Join us on December 5, 2018 at 10 AM EST

About the Webinar:

As article processing charges for OA journals continue to rise at alarming rates, the need for more affordable and transparent publishing models has never been greater. Many are calling for the academic community to take back control of journals from costly corporate publishers.

Are you among the many groups of scholars or academic institutions considering starting a new OA journal or flipping a paywalled journal to an OA model? In this webinar publishers and editors share:

  • Examples of how they successfully launched and flipped OA journals
  • Key considerations for flipping a journal
  • How to pick an OA funding and publishing model

We'll be fielding questions at the end of the webinar. You can submit questions at any time before or during the webinar via Twitter using the hashtag #AcademicLedOA.
