Frontiers in Publishing – Experiences with Open Access Journals.

Date: March 31 2016, 3pm to 6:00pm

Location: Activities and Recreation Center (ARC), Meeting Room 1

Frontiers is a leading Open Access scholarly journal publisher, with 55 journals in many disciplines and growing. In addition to rising journal Impact Factors, Frontiers is advancing article-level and author metrics as new ways of measuring the impact of research.

A growing number of UC Davis faculty members edit Frontiers journals and have gained experience with this new publishing model and its benefits and challenges for publishing research. Join us for a look at the benefits of Open Access publishing for improving research impact through increased citations, and a cross-disciplinary panel of five UC Davis editors, on how Frontiers has worked in practice.

A presentation and panel will be followed by a networking reception from 5:00-6:00pm. The event will also be live streamed for those who wish to attend remotely. See details below.
