open access 2018 radical transformations

On October 23, 2018, the Oviatt Library at California State University, Northridge (CSUN) is celebrating the open access movement with “Open Access 2018: Radical Transformations,” featuring the 5th Annual Open Access Award. This year’s $500 award recipients are the faculty of the CSUN Department of Physics & Astronomy for their collective contribution to the ScholarWorks Faculty Publications and Research collections.

As it celebrates contributions from Astronomy & Physics, this CSUN’s Open Access event focuses on open access in research and publication in the humanities.

Keynote speaker, Eileen Joy, Director of punctum books will discuss the drive to bring more open access publishing channels to the humanities, the obstacles faculty face, and how they can and should overcome them. In addition, CSUN’s Scott Kleinman, recipient of a Mellon Foundation grant for his WhatEery1Says Project (WE1S) will discuss the paradox of funding for open access humanities projects that must use proprietary restricted data.

Registration starts at 12:30 p.m.
