Choosing Open Access Publishing: The Key Issues

15 September, 12:00pm CEST
Open Science webinar, hosted by Sciences Po

What is Open Access Book Publishing? What does Open Science imply in the current publishing landscape? Which factors should junior researchers consider when choosing to publish open access?

These are the questions that will be addressed at this webinar. Researchers from CIVICA institutions and beyond are invited to join the conversation. The event features in the current work and future plans for Open Science on the Horizon 2020 funded CIVICA Research project.

The event is targeted at (post)doctoral researchers from the CIVICA alliance, but it is open to everyone.
