  • Peeling Back the Layers of an Independent Publishing House: DEIA, OA, & Flexible Collaborations

    Date: Thursday, May 26, 2022
    Time: 2:00pm - 3:30pm
    Location: Online - At Your Computer

    As libraries and publishers continue to navigate the Open Access movement, the need for inclusive content and research, budgetary constraints, and varying purchasing/licensing models, there have been increasing obstacles on the path to ensuring all needs are being met in library-publisher collaborations. This presentation will feature current library and publisher perspectives to determine how these entities can work together toward flexible and sustainable solutions within the context of direct library-publisher collaborations, featuring librarians from Auburn University, Clemson University, University of Central Florida, and University of Kentucky.

    This will also provide insight into independent publishers’ challenges specifically and how to mitigate limiting and misjudging of content that is coming from truly diversified researchers and the outlets that produce this research. Issues to address include mislabeling publishers and content across the industry, how this occurs, the industry standards of vetting quality research, DEIA across the industry, and developing truly transformative OA models and initiatives.
