9th ERUA Open Science Meet-Up: Open Access Books

Individual articles that are published in Open Access journals or via preprint servers have established themselves in a range of academic disciplines since the 1990s. A less well-known format of Open Access publishing are the so-called Open Access books, i.e. full-fledged academic books that are published without access restrictions on the internet. In this meet-up, Andreas Kirchner, Open Access consultant at the University of Konstanz’ Team Open Science and co-founder of the Open Access publisher meson press, will explain what characterises open access books and in which academic contexts they are popular. Moreover, he will shed light on why meson press chose to publish Open Access books, what the process of publication at meson press looks like and how their Open Access books are financed. After the talk, participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and to discuss things in greater detail. All members of the five ERUA universities (New Bulgarian University, Roskilde, Konstanz, Paris 8 and University of the Aegean) are very welcome to join in the session, no registration is required.
