Open Access: Academic Perspectives

In Autumn 2016 we took the opportunity to find out what some King's academics thought and felt about open access. We invited two professors and an administrator (who is also an academic) to share their perspectives. They kindly obliged and considered the topic in the broadest sense, offering their thoughts of where the value of open access lies both for academics and the global public.

This is a project we intend to continue.
