Librarians are responsible for providing access to information; commercial publishers are responsible for providing information to access. How does this dichotomy succeed in the reality of open access? What issues cause this dichotomy, and how can cooperative success be achieved?
This Lively Lunch presents issues for discussion to further necessary cooperation among librarians and commercial publishers. Open Perspectives for discussion:
Why is open access necessary for commercially-published serials?
 Relationship to institutional repositories
 Predatory open access journals
Does open access negatively affect the quality of scholarly content?
 “Information wants to be free”: The necessity of peer-review, editors, editorial boards
 Tenure and promotion pertaining to publication requirements
 Author rights in concert with open access and commercial publishing
Collection development budgets versus commercial publisher revenue
 Open access and cost savings for libraries
 Impact of open access commercial publishing on revenue and productivity
 The reality of monopolistic practices and predatory pricing
What are the true impacts of open access mandates, gold versus green options, and APC requirements on libraries and commercial publishers?
Facilitator: Dr. Gary Pitkin, former library dean, editor of three commercially-published journals, author, consultant. Panelists: Dr. Marta Deyrup, Professor Seton Hall University, LITA acquisitions editor, editorial board member/peer-reviewer, author, consultant; George Machovec, Executive Director Colorado Alliance of Research Libraries, editorial board member, author, consultant; Stacy Sieck, Library Communications Manager for the Americas, Taylor and Francis; Tony Roche, Publishing Director, Emerald Group Publishing.
