PAYWALL - The Business of Scholarship

PAYWALL - The Business of Scholarship In-Person

Join us to watch the movie "PAYWALL The Business of Scholarship", produced and directed by Jason Schmitt, Chair of Communication and Media at Clarson University in Potsdam, New York. Stay for roundtable discussions afterwards.  

“Paywall: The Business of Scholarship is a documentary which focuses on the need for open access to research and science, questions the rationale behind the $25.2 billion a year that flows into for-profit academic publishers, examines the 35-40% profit margin associated with the top academic publisher Elsevier and looks at how that profit margin is often greater than some of the most profitable tech companies like Apple, Facebook and Google. “

This event will be on October 25th at 4:00-5:30 pm in Hawkins-Carlson Room in Rush Rhees Library. Light refreshments available. 

Sponsored by River Campus Libraries. Organizers: Lindsay Cronk, Moriana Garcia, Zary Kamarei, Mary Ann Mavrinac, Rochelle Mazar  and Emily Sherwood.
