The way in which humanities researchers publish their work is undergoing a profound transformation. The introduction of digital technologies that shift the cost of publishing to the labor to produce the first copy, rather than the actual dissemination, changes the research-publication landscape. Where previously scholars committed their work to journals that were printed and sold (to small audiences), with the advent of the internet and the world wide web comes the possibility of giving free access to anybody who is interested, not just to those who can pay. In this talk, Dr. Martin Paul Eve will explore the contexts and controversies that sit behind so-called "open-access" publishing and present alternative models for the future of humanities research communication.
Martin Paul Eve is a senior lecturer in Literature, Technology and Publishing at Birkbeck, University of London. The slides for this presentation are available from https://www.martineve.com/presentations/2015-KU/#/
