Event description

Description

In preparation for Open Access Week the University of Adelaide Library invites you to a free screening of Paywall: The Business of Scholarship. You will also have the opportunity to hear about the proposed new University of Adelaide's Open Access Policy and have your say.

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.

Watch the film then come to the Open Access Week Event: Designing Equitable Foundations of Open Knowledge on the 23 October 2018 and hear about how open access is being put into practice at the University of Adelaide, University of South Australia and Flinders University.

Popcorn provided!
