OPEN ACCESS PUBLISHING: Opportunities for Authors

UC San Diego Library’s 2021 Open Access Week Virtual Event

November. 3rd at 2:30-3:30 pm [PST] [LINK to register]

Learn about open access publishing opportunities through the UC’s transformative agreements (open to UC authors) and other avenues open to all authors. 

The UC San Diego University Librarian, Erik Mitchell, will give an update on the UC Transformative Agreements and where we are in the process of increasing sustainable journal subscription access and OA publishing discounts or full-coverage for UC authors. 

Allegra Swift, UC San Diego Scholarly Communication Librarian, will discuss OA publishing avenues for authors whose chosen publishing venue or format is not covered by the UC agreements.

The event was recorded (see the Library’s YouTube channel) and transcripts and slides are shared here.
