Description

The library is kicking off Open Access Week 2018 by sharing stories from around campus that illustrate the power and reach of open access. Come to the Friday Forum on October 19th to hear campus colleagues talk about the benefits of open access publishing and how it intersects with their teaching, learning, and research. Our speakers represent a range of perspectives and projects:

  • Anthropology Professor Amy Evrard established a student-created, open access series called “What All Americans Should Know About Women in the Muslim World.” Students from ANTH 218 (Islam and Women) contribute to the ongoing series, which has been accessed by readers from 134 countries. One work received additional exposure after being cited in a Cosmo blog post about medical care for Muslim women.
  • Technical Services Assistant Miranda Wisor ’17 started an open access, peer-reviewed, undergraduate research journal while she was a student. She will speak about the process of creating and launching the Gettysburg Social Sciences Review, which has published two issues to date.
  • Health Sciences Professor Josef Brandauer has been using an open textbook in multiple iterations of HS 232 (Statistics for the Health Sciences). Learn how it affects his teaching as well as how the choice impacts students.
  • Research & Instruction Librarian Clinton Baugess will talk about a contract negotiation regarding his rights to share his own published work. What did he ask for, and how did he approach the conversation? Spoiler alert: he legally posted open versions of the book chapter. Come hear the full story and get ideas for your next publication contract experience.
