Open Access and Monographs: publishers, policies, practicalities

Chaired by Professor Daniel Wakelin (Faculty of English) and following on from the Oxford OA monographs seminar in November 2018, another chance to hear from practitioners about the latest developments in OA for academic books. Speakers will discuss open access to long-form works from their different perspectives. Presenters include Dr Caroline Warman (Faculty of Medieval and Modern Languages), Dr Helen Snaith (Research England), Professor Roger Kain (Chair, UUK Open Access Monographs working group), and representatives from Manchester University Press, Oxford University Press and the University’s Open Access support team. The aims are to provide updates on current developments, help researchers take informed decisions about publishing, and to know where to go for help. This event is aimed at Humanities Division academics, researchers & research students, but is open to all current University members.
