Event Time:
4:00 PM - 5:30 PM GMT


Publications that are Open Access are freely downloadable as a PDF, under a Creative Commons Licence, often with an option to pay for print copies on demand. Making a publication Open Access is well-known to increase its impact, accessibility, and citation numbers. The problem is, typical publishers will only allow Open Access for authors who can pay large fees, making Open Access inaccessible to many.

What are the best strategies to make Open Access options widely available in philosophy? This workshop brings together philosophers and experts involved in open access publishing to share and debate their experience.

We'll have

- Two 10 min keynotes from Sabina Leonelli (Exeter) and John Norton (Pittsburgh),

- A round of 5 minutes flashtalks featuring  Stavros Ioannidis (Analytica), Alastair Wilson (Ergo), Marina Uzunova (Erasmus Journal for Philosophy of economics), Alexandre Guay (Lato Sensu), David Velleman (Philosopher's imprint), Ramón Feenstra (Recerca), Ties Nijssen (Springer), Javier González de Prado (Theoria).

A 30 minutes debate will follow, with a closing recap by Helen Beebee (editorial chair of BSPS Open)

The event is organized and chaired by Bryan Roberts and David Teira, editors of BSPS Open.
