The library is hosting a special screening of Paywall: the business of scholarship for International Open Access Week (#OAweek).
Paywall: The Business of Scholarship is a documentary which focuses on the need for open access to research and science, questions the rationale behind the $25.2 billion a year that flows into for-profit academic publishers, examines the 35-40% profit margin associated with the top academic publisher Elsevier and looks at how that profit margin is often greater than some of the most profitable tech companies like Apple, Facebook and Google.
Free to attend, FREE POPCORN! Registration not required, but helps us to bring the right amount of popcorn.
When: Thursday 25th October – 12.15 – 2pm
Where: Flinders Central Library (Noel Stockdale Room)
