What is open access? What is hybrid open access?–green, gold, or diamond open access? What is an “author processing charge,” and why am I being asked to pay to have my work published? How will people find my book if it’s made open access?

…Should I do it?

In this session, Open Scholarship Librarian and former assistant editor of Cultural Critique, Dylan Mohr* will discuss how open access is driving the changing academic publishing landscape in the humanities. You will learn how open access has changed publisher and library funding/acquisition models and how the changes affect how your work is disseminated and discovered. Together we will work through the benefits and drawbacks of making your monograph open access, and you will leave equipped with questions to bring to publishers to help you best decide if open access is right for your work.

This event cosponsored by the Syracuse University Humanities Center and is open to all faculty and graduate students. *Read more about Dylan’s new appointment!
