Description

Health Sciences students at Gettysburg College have bountiful access to scholarly and medical publications, but what happens after graduation? When you enter a health profession, will you be able to access the information you need to make informed decisions on the job?

Students are asking hard questions about the cost of information, who pays, and why it matters (see this SURGE blog post for one perspective: Information – Access:Denied). Learn more about the publishing system that fuels your learning, including the growing importance of “open access” publishing.

Please join us for a fun program during Open Access Week. This is NOT a lecture!

  • Feed your body – we’ll decorate and eat OPEN ACCESS COOKIES
  • Nourish your mind – discover the real cost of articles in your field and learn how Open Access impacts medical education and patient care
  • Satisfy your curiosity – talk with Prof. Amy Dailey about her experiences publishing in both conventional and open access journals

This special event was designed for the Pre-Health Professions Club and is open to anyone interested in the topic.
