Scholarly Communication


Join us for an entertaining evening where scholars, publishers, administrators and others discuss the question 'Can society afford open access?'

Open access disseminates research to the community, circumventing expensive publisher subscriptions. But there is a high cost associated with open access and it is not without risk.

The panel consists of:

  • Professor Stephen Curry, Structural Biology at Imperial College (Chair/Moderator)
  • Dr Daniel Allington, Digital Cultures, University of the West of England
  • Professor Peter Mandler, President of the Royal Historical Society
  • Dr Theodora Bloom, Executive Editor, BMJ
  • Dr Danny Kingsley, Head of Scholarly Communications, Cambridge University

 Join us for a lively discussion on the complexities of this highly contested topic.

Please Pre-Book at:
