Description

On October 16th, 2014, SJSU ASIS&T Student Chapter welcomed Mark Hahnel, PhD, the Founder and CEO of figshare, to discuss open access, open science, data sharing, and their impact on academia and on research in general. From being mandated in the UK to the need to increase access to federally funded research in the US, and the overall success of open access mega-journals such as PLOS, open access has changed the face of scholarly communications in academia. Hahnel provided the pros and cons of each of these ideas and their disruptive business models, as well as highlighting examples where the norm has already changed and what that means for the future of scholarly work and academia.
