2014 State of the Nation(s): Facing Challenges Posed by International Open Access Mandates
What does the North American university press community need to know about governmental OA mandates across the globe? "Gold OA" seems to be adding to, not alleviating, the major expense of maintaining STEM library spending in some countries—how will we compete? Can reasonable approaches prevail over the seeming "one-size-doesn't-fit-all" policies being imposed on humanists? Our expert panel will provide answers, insights, and the very latest developments from Canada, the UK, and the European Union.
