Paywall: Screening & panel discussion

← Back to list of events

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.”

Following the screening there will be a panel discussion led by Library Director Ben Rawlins, Director of Open Teaching and Learning Alexis Clifton, and Professor of English Paul Schacht, Ph.D.
