For Open Access Week, Florida Tech’s Evans Library is pleased to consider the topic of economic models for academic journal publishing that can wean us away from past practice with its expensive paywalls. First, Ivy Anderson, of the University of California’s California Digital Library, will report on the SCOAP3 project, with its OA-flipping success in the field of high-energy physics—potentially auspicious as well for analogously focused professional association publishing. Next, materials scientists Johna Leddy, of the University of Iowa, and Gerald Frankel, of the Ohio State University, will share the story of the “Free the Science” program undertaken by the Electrochemical Society. Third, economist Christian Zimmermann (perhaps familiar to scholComm librarians as a driving force behind the RePEc pre-print repository) will look at these OA publishing models to help shed light on fruitful paths for future efforts. We’ll wrap up with a Q&A session.
