Publishing in uncertain times: open or closed?

Publishing in uncertain times: open or closed?

Description
Universities across Europe are questioning the high margins of commercial publishers like Elsevier. While there are a lot of good arguments for publishing articles in open-access, it may be a difficult choice for an early career scholar to do so. EUI members knowledgeable in these areas would like to share their knowledge and would be interested to hear your thoughts! Bring your panino and join us over lunch next Thursday 31st from 1-2 pm in the Emeroteca!
