Paywall: The Business of Scholarship (Open Access Week)

Join us for a screening of the film Paywall: The Business of Scholarship, followed by a brief discussion.

Paywall: The Business of Scholarship Poster

Paywall: The Business of Scholarship is a documentary which focuses on the need for open access to research and science, questions the rationale behind the $25.2 billion a year that flows into for-profit academic publishers, examines the 35-40% profit margin associated with the top academic publisher Elsevier and looks at how that profit margin is often greater than some of the most profitable tech companies like Apple, Facebook and Google.
