Willinsky on OA – Nov 4

International Open Access Week continues with a talk by John Willinsky on Open Access and other Intellectual Properties of Learning

Thursday, November 4
Education/Psychology Library

In this talk, Professor John Willinsky will provide a brief update on current developments in open access. He will sketch out a host of reasons (historical, philosophical, economic, and legal) why some form of open access on a global basis is an entirely reasonable expectation, full of educational and intellectual advantages.

John Willinsky is the Khosla Family Professor of Education at Stanford University and director of the Public Knowledge Project. Much of his published work, as well as PKP’s journal and conference management software, is freely available through the project’s website.

  • Students, researchers, faculty and the public are invited to attend.
  • Come early and get a free t-shirt (a limited number of open access t-shirts will be distributed)
  • Light refreshments will be served.
