Donders Session: What to do with the academic publishing system?

Thursday 16 May 2024, 10 am - 12 pm

The academic community relies on for-profit publishers to organize the publishing process. In fact, academic publishing is one of the most profitable sectors in the modern world. There are increasingly alarming calls that the outsourcing of this core scientific practice has led to malpractices that go against core scientific values. Can we as a research community and policymakers do anything about this? In this Donders Session we invited policy makers, scholars of academic publishing, activists, and the Radboud University Press, to provide their assessment on the current state and future of academic publishing. We invite you to come discuss this issue with us.
