Chat with Peter Suber

ASERL’s Open Access Week chat with Peter Suber

The Association of Southeastern Research Libraries (ASERL) today hosted a discussion with Peter Suber, Director of the Harvard Office of Scholarly Communications. Suber this week blogged in The Guardian to put to rest six myths of Open Access.

The format was an interactive interview with questions submitted by the online audience in real-time. My colleague Christine Fruin, ASERL’s Visiting Program Officer for Scholarly Communications, moderated the session.

Peter Suber’s 2012 book Open Access is available from MIT Press: Peter Suber is … Director of the Harvard Open Access Project, a Faculty Fellow at the Berkman Center for Internet & Society, and Senior Researcher at SPARC (Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition). He is widely considered the de facto leader of the worldwide open access movement.
