Open Access: New Developments in the Publishing Space

Open Access panelists at UCSF

Want to learn about innovative approaches in open access publishing? On June 17, join Dr. Peter Binfield and a panel of experts as they discuss the future of open access publishing, and learn about the new open access publisher, PeerJ.

Peter Binfield is the founder and publisher of PeerJ, an open access publisher that makes access to research free to all and affordable to publish for academic authors and their institutions. PeerJ offers two publications serving the biological and medical sciences: PeerJ (a peer-reviewed academic journal) and PeerJ PrePrints (a "preprint server"). Authors pay for memberships as low as $99, which give them the ability to publish their articles for free.

Prior to starting PeerJ, Binfield developed PLOS ONE into the largest and most innovative journals in the world. He has a PhD in optical physics and has worked in the academic publishing world for almost 20 years.
