Paywall: The Business of Scholarship — Pizza and a movie
Join us for a screening of the new documentary Paywall: the Business of Scholarship as we celebrate International Open Access Week. 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 like Apple, Facebook and Google.
Thursday, November 1st @ 5pm in Olin Art Center, Rm. 105. All are welcome and pizza is provided.
