This fall, we are offering a mini seminar series called Hot Topics in IP and Technology. We've invited industry experts to come and talk about the latest in Intellectual Property (IP) topics and emerging technology and the implications for research, innovation, and entrepreneurship.
For October’s seminar, we've invited Chris Harris and Jen Goodrich from Copyright Clearance Center (CCC) to share their expertise and experience in Open Access (OA) – freely available, digital, online information. Jen is Director of Product Management and Publisher Solutions at CCC and Chris serves as Legal Counsel. CCC provides collective copyright licensing services for corporate and academic users of copyrighted materials.
OA is a newer form of scholarly publishing that is of interest to many in academia, but researchers often struggle with the decision of whether to publish in OA journals versus traditional journals. In this seminar, Chris and Jen will provide a general overview of OA, including the benefits and challenges of publishing in the OA space, and will discuss recent trends. They will also take a deeper dive into the subject to compare OA publishing in humanities and social sciences versus STEM research, and how it might affect funding.
