Description: With school back in session, librarians are challenged with ensuring that any investment in resources meets their institution’s needs in a turbulent academic landscape that includes the threat of predatory publishing, rapid advancement of technology, research, and the evolution of OA publishing.
This exclusive webinar for OhioNET members will outline how IGI Global, an international academic publisher, is challenging the industry standard by providing the most innovative content and solutions to help librarians navigate these obstacles. Speakers will break down the stigma of “traditional publishing”, provide insights on forthcoming research trends, and explain pioneering solutions that are being implemented by libraries around the world.
Additionally, they will outline a “true read and publish model”, IGI Global’s OA Fee Waiver (Read and Publish) Initiative, which is providing institutions with a sustainable source of OA funding through the acquisition of IGI Global’s InfoSci-Books (5,300+ e-books) and InfoSci-Journals (185+ e-journals) databases.
