How do I cultivate relationships with presses? What should I ask my publisher? How do I advocate for open access support at my institution? What do editors think about our open access future? \nJoin us for a lively conversation with leading OA publishers to get answers to these questions! Participants will also benefit from hearing insider perspectives on developing OA programs within the world of academic publishing and the future of open access. \nREGISTER HERE. \nAbout the presenters:\nDylan Mohr is the Open Scholarship Library at Syracuse University.
