When people hear or see the words "open access," they think of open access journals and wonder how much they’ll have to pay to publish in them. This session will address some of the misperceptions around open access and help you build a plan to make your research openly available using open access journals and/or Dalhousie’s institutional repository (DalSpace).
Learn how to build open access into your research plan (fees, publisher policies, retaining preprints and post prints), learn about what Open Access is and isn’t and find out how our institutional repository DalSpace can fit into your workflow.
Presenter Geoff Brown is the Digital Scholarship and Government Information Librarian at Dalhousie Libraries. He manages DalSpace, oversees the libraries journal hosting service and is working to support open textbook development both at Dalhousie University and in the Atlantic region.
Wednesday, October 24/12–1 p.m.
