Dr. Peter Suber, director of the Harvard Office for Scholarly Communication and the Harvard Open Access Project, will discuss how our campus can embrace open access to advance research and generate new knowledge on April 6, 4-5 p.m. in Behavioral Sciences Building 131.
His presentation, “How Could CSU Embrace Open Access?” is free and open to the entire campus community.
Suber’s appearance as a Special ISTeC Seminar broadcast speaker is a follow-on to the very engaging presentation last year on this topic by Nobel Laureate Randy Schekman.
Suber, a leading voice in the open access movement, is also Faculty Fellow at the Berkman Center for Internet & Society, Senior Researcher at the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition, and Research Professor of Philosophy at Earlham College. He is the author of numerous distinguished writings on open access; his latest book, Open Access (MIT Press, 2012), was named an Outstanding Academic Title for 2013 by Choice.
This Special ISTeC Seminar is presented in conjunction with the Faculty Council Committee on Libraries and Morgan Library.
ISTeC (Information Science and Technology Center) is a university-wide organization for promoting, facilitating, and enhancing CSU’s research, education, and outreach activities pertaining to the design and innovative application of computer, communication, and information systems.
