Event Description

Open access disseminates research to the community, circumventing expensive publisher subscriptions. But there is a high cost associated with open access and it is not without risk. Join us for a discussion on the complexities of this highly contested topic.

The panel consists of:

  • Professor Stephen Curry, Structural Biology at Imperial College (Chair/Moderator)
  • Dr Daniel Allington, Digital Cultures, University of the West of England
  • Professor Peter Mandler, President of the Royal Historical Society
  • Dr Theodora Bloom, Executive Editor, BMJ
  • Dr Danny Kingsley, Head of Scholarly Communications, Cambridge University

This event is in partnership with the Office of Scholarly Communications based at the UL, and Cambridge University Press.

MAIN LECTURE ROOM, OLD DIVINITY SCHOOL, ST JOHN'S COLLEGE, ALL SAINTS PASSAGE, CB2 1TP
