Open access journals remove the price and permission barriers that limit the reach of scholarship. Join a panel of editors, authors, and librarians for a conversation on getting published in top open access journals. The discussion will feature editors from PLOS ONE and BioMed Central journals, as well as authors and librarians who have worked extensively with open access.
Learn about identifying key open journals in your field, developing manuscripts, the submission process, and getting your article processing charges paid. Experts will discuss the benefits and challenges of working with open access journals.
