Sixth ERUA Open Science Meet-Up: Open Access Journals
Digital journals are becoming more and more important in academic publishing. A general distinction is made between closed access journals and open access journals; while articles in closed access journals are behind paywalls, open access articles can be read for free by everyone and everywhere.
In this meet-up, George Walkden, professor of English linguistics and editor-in-chief of the Journal of Historical Syntax, will outline the main differences between closed access journals and open access journals by using the Journal of Historical Syntax as an example. Furthermore, he will discuss why the Journal’s editors chose open rather than closed access, what editorial and publiction-related workflows consist of and how the Journal is 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.
Prof. Dr. George Walkden, Maximilian Heber
