Really Open, or Really Shut Away? How Do Researchers Discover that Elusive Open Access Content?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

As the sheer volume of Open Access publications increases, one the most significant emergent challenges is discoverability. The OA content that publishers and authors create may well be free and available in theory, but how do readers find it?

Open Access content is everywhere - in institutional repositories, via OAPEN and DOAJ and on publisher's own websites - but researchers have a hard time locating exactly the quality-assured content are looking for, especially when it comes to relevant Gold Open Access content.

In this session, a distinguished panel of experts from across the scholarly publishing landscape will discuss the challenges brought about by the widespread shift to Open Access models, and the ways in which discoverability of appropriate peer-reviewed Open Access content can be addressed.
