Open access publishing has grown in popularity in large part because it facilitates the sharing of research. This publishing model, which provides an alternative to traditional pay-to-access model, demonstrates many advantages but also comes with its own challenges. Join campus colleagues in discussing the pros and cons of the open access model, whether it inherently benefits society at large, how it is impacted by the current tenure process, and how Princeton University can engage in broader changes to support the best of open access initiatives. Our panelists include:
DANIEL I. RUBENSTEIN, Class of 1877 Professor of Zoology, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology. Director, Program in Environmental Studies
ANDREW LEIFER, Assistant Professor of Physics and Neuroscience
URI HASSON, Professor of Psychology and the Princeton Neuroscience Institute
