Chair: Michael Jubb, Research Information Network
Speakers: Liz Ferguson, Victoria Gardner, Phil Hurst, John Norman, Neil Jacobs, Nicola Gulley, Kathryn Spiller and Hazel Newton

Open Access is very much in the news – this seminar looks at the practicalities of implementing OA policy for both STM and HSS publishing.

The hybrid model is now under increasing scrutiny – what are the challenges facing publishers, librarians and funders? Global OA policies have increasing granular focus – what does this mean for workflows, processes and standardisation of data? How do hybrid and gold OA publishing differ when it comes to marketing products and services? What are the issues surrounding APC collection systems? Join our expert speakers to discuss these and other questions.
