Thursday, December 2, 2010 • 2:00-4:00 p.m.
120 Elmer L. Andersen Library, University of Minnesota

U Faculty Joshua Feinberg, David Levinson, and Patricia Lorcin will present and have a conversation about current and future publishing practices. The panel will be introduced and moderated by University Librarian Wendy Lougee. Questions they will address include:

  • What is your journal's greatest challenge?
  • What rights do you give your authors? (e.g. ability to create derivative works, post or distribute pre/post-print, archive in the University Digital Conservatory or a subject repository)
  • At what point after publication is most of your journal's content made available free of charge to the public?
  • How important are library subscriptions to your journal's revenue flow?
  • What predictions can you forecast about future publishing practices of your journal?

The forum will offer the opportunity for attendees to ask questions and contribute to the discussion with their fellow colleagues. All perspectives and experiences are welcome.

Organized by the Scholarly Communication Collaborative, a group formed by the Libraries to inform and educate the campus on policy and practical issues surrounding scholarly communication.

This event has been designated by the Office of the Vice President for Research to satisfy the Awareness/Discussion component of the Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) continuing education requirement.
