Open Access Week is an international event supporting open access to scholarly research. In recent years, we’ve seen an increase in the number of digital repositories where scholars may freely share their publications and data. To celebrate Open Access Week, we’ve invited the founders of two prominent new multi-disciplinary repositories to discuss their goals and priorities, and the technology underlying their systems. Humanities Commons is a social repository for humanists launched by the Modern Language Association in collaboration with Columbia University Libraries. SocArXiv is a preprint service directed by group of sociologists and research librarians in partnership with the Center for Open Science. We’ll have a round-table discussion with plenty of time for questions from the audience. This event is open to the public.
When: Wednesday, October 26th, 4:30 – 6:00 p.m.
Where: Avery Room, 2nd floor of Bobst Library
- Philip Cohen, University of Maryland
- Kathleen Fitzpatrick, Modern Language Association
- Mark Newton, Columbia University Libraries
