How Publishing in Open Access Books Impacts Your Research Career

Tues. Jan. 30, 12:00-2:00pm, TMEC 448 at HMS, 260 Longwood Ave.

While publishing in OA journals may be a familiar topic, many researchers are not aware of the benefits of publishing in OA books. This session will focus on discovering the inner workings of OA books where publishing time can be as low as 8-10 months. Unlike articles which are not thematically connected to the rest of the journal, the books include chapters from various authors and are connected into a comprehensive coverage of a theme, including various authors. Lunch provided. Any questions contact

Limited to 25. RSVP to Mirena Bagur, mirena.bagur@gmail.com by Jan. 25.
