Event description

Description

As part of International Open Access Week, Monash University Library is hosting a free film screening to be followed by a panel discussion.

Paywall: The Business of Scholarship is a documentary which 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.

Join our panelists for a stimulating discussion on open access:

  • Mr Bob Gerrity, University Librarian

  • Associate Professor Michael Brown, School of Physics and Astronomy

  • Ms Sian Wright, Director Research Performance, Office of the Vice-Provost (Faculty and Graduate Affairs)

  • Mr Mark Hahnel, CEO, Figshare

Moderator: Mr David Groenewegen, Director, Research - Library
