Event Description

As part of International Open Access Week, we will screen the film Paywall: The Business of Scholarship. This documentary focuses on the need for open access to research and science, questions the rationale behind the $25.2 billion a year that flows into for-profit academic publishers, examines the 35-40% profit margin associated with the top academic publisher Elsevier, and looks at how that profit margin is often greater than some of the most profitable tech companies.

Date: 24 October 2018

Time: 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

Language: English

Target Audience: Students, researchers and librarians
