The university community is invited to participate in a town hall about academic publishing and open access practices at The University of Texas at Austin.  

The event is co-sponsored by the Provost’s Sustainable Open Scholarship (SOS) Working Group and its Open Access and Licensing & Negotiation subcommittees.

The SOS Working Group is charged with developing a statement of values about open access and guiding principles for negotiating UT’s contracts in support of sustainable open scholarship practices with scholarly publishers.  

The Town Hall will include a brief presentation to provide foundational information and a common understanding of open access issues and will be an important opportunity for attendees to provide the critical input the subcommittees need to complete their work. 

2 p.m., Tuesday, Feburary 23, 2021

The SOS Subcommittee endeavors to present an inclusive dialogue and needs to hear many voices in order to articulate a statement of values about open access for The University of Texas at Austin.
