OA Week 2023 Event - Support for OA Publishing at UT

In this session we’ll talk about UT Libraries support for open access (OA) publishing, including support that eliminates article processing charges (APCs) for UT authors. We’ll discuss the main types of OA publishing business models (including OA book publishing), and how the Libraries is strategically investing in these options. Finally, we’ll show participants how they can share their work regardless of the publication model. This free session is open to anyone, but will be of most interest to faculty, students, and staff who publish scholarly content. Registration is required

Date/time:  Tuesday, Oct. 24th from 12:00pm-1:00pm (Zoom registration link
