Frances C. Arrillaga Alumni Center
The Stanford University Libraries and Academic Information Resources (SULAIR) is pleased to host a Scholarly Communication Colloquium to raise awareness of current issues in scholarly publishing, and to provide faculty and graduate students with the information they need to make informed choices about where and how to publish their research.
The resolution on Scholarly Publishing that was passed by the Faculty Senate in 2004 encouraged faculty to consider journal pricing in addition to reputation when considering where to publish or serve on editorial boards. Since then, SULAIR has been working to ensure that faculty have the information they need in making these decisions. Our first effort was the Scholarly Communications and Publishing website. The Colloquium takes that effort one step further.
Featured events at the Colloquium include a publisher’s panel discussion, as well as a panel of Stanford authors and editors. In addition, Ted Bergstrom of UC Santa Barbara will present on the economics of Scholarly Publishing; Stanford’s own Doug Brutlag, author of the original Faculty Senate resolution, will discuss Stanford’s reaction to the serials crisis; Mia Garlick of Creative Commons will discuss licensing options for authors; and John Willinsky of the University of British Columbia will present on Open Access journals.
All faculty, staff, postdocs, and graduate students are encouraged to attend.
Colloquium Planning Committee: Assunta Pisani, Grace Baysinger, Mimi Calter, Paul Zarins.
