Venue: North Training Room, BLU Library, TCD
Dr. Richard Gallagher is the current President & Editor-in-Chief of Annual Reviews, a Palo Alto, California-based independent nonprofit science publisher. With over 25 years’ experience in science editing and publishing, he is now leading efforts to position Annual Reviews, one of the world’s most prized repositories of scientific knowledge, as a public resource to promote engagement with research and enable rational debate on key societal issues.
Richard will facilitate a presentation highlighting how Annual Reviews has been engaging with Open Access, what measures they have introduced to embrace the Open Research environment and his views on what the future entails for academic publishing. Annual Reviews are trying a “subscribe-to-open” model in which its papers are offered for free once it reaches enough subscription revenue to cover its costs. This approach has recently been discussed in Open Access circles across the world.
After Richard's presentation, he will sit down with TCD's Librarian & College Archivist Ms. Helen Shenton to explore further some of the pertinent themes addressed during his presentation before the session is opened to the floor for questions and comments.
