Feb: Open Access MegaJournals — What You Need to Know… (ASERL)

Wednesday, February 5, 2014 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EST

Peter Binfield (the Publisher and Co-Founder of PeerJ, and previously the Publisher of PLOS ONE) will provide an overview of the state of play regarding open access megajournals (journals such as PLOS ONE or PeerJ,which peer-review only for scientific and methodological soundness, and not for ‘impact’ or ‘degree of advance’). He will review what makes a journal ‘mega’; how many of these titles there are and how they are performing; and he will explain how this editorial model appears poised to significantly change the publishing landscape. If you are interested in the future of the scholarly journal, then you won’t want to miss this one!
