Faculty Enrichment Event on Open Access

Speakers: Peter Binfield, Karen Butter, Rich Schneider

Please join the Library and the Chancellor’s Council on Faculty Life for a panel event, Open Access: a New Era in Publishing. This is the first of three events on the topic of scholarly journal publishing.

Want to know more about open access – how it works, what it costs, how it affects your promotion, what open peer review means, and what UCSF is doing to promote an open access mandate? The February 22 event will feature three distinguished speakers with substantial knowledge of the open access publishing movement and its implications for academic institutions:

Peter Binfield, PhD, Public Library of Science, publisher, PLoS One and the Community Journals
Karen Butter, ML, University Librarian and Assistant Vice Chancellor for Library Services & Instructional Technology
Rich Schneider, PhD, Associate Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery and COLASC Chair

Moderated by David Teitel, MD, Professor and Medical Director of the Pediatric Heart Center
