The Digital Humanities Thematic Research Network is pleased to announce the following event in its Digital Humanities in Practice seminar series:
The Scholarly Monograph in the Age of Open Access
Date: 27 September 2012
Time: 12.00pm – 2.00pm
Venue: MR1, 2, 3, Wilson A Ground Floor, Walton Hall, Milton Keynes
Open Access publishing is an area of growing interest in the academic community, especially after the publication of the Finch report and the RCUK’s decision to impose an Open Access mandate on all outputs deriving from public funds. However, most of the discussion so far has been dominated by the concerns of the Sciences and has concentrated on journal articles. What is the future, in this new context, of the scholarly monograph, which is of central importance in the Humanities? Caren Milloy of JISC will discuss the findings of the OAPEN project on Humanities publishing, while Rupert Gatti will outline his experience as a publisher of open access monographs.
Caren Milloy, JISC-OAPEN
Rupert Gatti, Open Book Publishers.
Lunch and refreshments will be provided. To book a place please email Heather Scott firstname.lastname@example.org by 24 September 2012.
