Description

Within the past decade, we have seen years of open access growth and are now celebrating Open Access Week’s tenth anniversary, but have also seen an emergence and increased use of websites that host pirated academic content. This presentation will profile the who’s, what’s, and why’s of some less than legal academic access platforms, how these platforms are affecting the world of academic publishing, and look into legal open access repositories that are trying to accomplish many of the same goals as their illegal counterparts. Without going too far into the challenges of ‘open access’ itself, this presentation and following discussion will evaluate the perceived needs and outputs of communities using and creating these sites while also thinking of ways to confront these needs through more legal avenues.

Snacks and refreshments will be provided!
