Learning in Retirement - The Changing Landscape of Library Acquisitions: Transformative Agreements and Other OA Publishing Models
Series: Libraries, Publishers, and Open Access

Speaker: Jeffrey MacKie-Mason, University Librarian, Chief Digital Scholarship Officer, Professor, School of Information and Professor of Economics

Topic Description: The Academic Senate and the UC President have policies embracing open access (no-payment-to-read) publishing that are nearly a decade old. In 2018 the UC Libraries and Academic Senate developed a new strategy for "flipping" scholarly publishers to open access publishing (pay-to-publish, free-to-read). This strategy has been very effective: 50% of UC-authored articles are now eligible for open access publishing under these new agreements. I have co-chaired the UC-wide project since the start and will report on negotiations with publishers, and opportunities and challenges remaining.

Organizer: Organized by Donald Mastronarde, Professor of the Graduate School, Emeritus Melpomene Distinguished Professor of Classical Languages and Literature
