We have a guest speaker today

Gina Likins

Gina Likins

Gina Likins is on the University Outreach, Open Source and Standards Team at Red Hat in Raleigh.

To prepare yourselves for her presentation,

she would like you to read Open access as a matter of academic ethics: The right thing to do.

In addition to reading the article,

please also pay attention to the comments.

If you want to read more about the topic,

feel free to download and save to your personal digital library the article The Academic Ethics of Open Access to Research and Scholarship by John Willinsky and Juan Pablo Alperin.

Our guest speaker will have a lot to say, but be prepared to engage her in discussion
