Registration Closed / Past Event


Academics scholar experience a lot of pressure to publish in the "right" venues, obtain grant funding, communicate their findings to the public and carry out their teaching. With the arrival of the internet came the promise of a faster, cheaper, and more democratic method of disseminating scholarly research. However, almost 20 years later, a small group of publishers still dominate and many academics are still struggling to make their work available to a general audience.

Stephanie Savage examines various stakeholders and traces the economics of publishing in order to better understand what drives faculty decisions and beliefs around their publishing decisions. In this workshop she will discuss potential publishing careers and offer gradute students tools to better decide how and where to publish.


Stephanie Savage is a Scholarly Communications and Copyright Services Librarian at UBC Library. In her current role, she provides copyright expertise to the UBC community and helps develop open initiatives on campus and support researchers in disseminating their research as widely as possible.
