Paywall: The Business of Scholarship (documentary)

Join us for a screening of 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 top academic publishers, and looks at how that profit margin is often greater than some of the most profitable tech companies.

Date: Tuesday, November 6, 2018
Time: 11:00am - 12:30pm
Location: Building 32, SR04 (limited availability RSCH room)
