Live Chat: Exploring the 'Wild West' of Open Access
4 October 2013 7:45 am
By charging authors a fee to publish their research, open-access journals make scientific papers free to the public. But in this new world of academic publishing, journals aren’t always what they appear. Science contributing correspondent John Bohannon went undercover to map out which journals used peer review in evaluating a fatally flawed paper, and he shares his findings in this week’s special science communication issue.
Join Bohannon and two prominent voices in the open-access debate—University of Pennsylvania biologist David Roos and University of California, Berkeley, biologist and Public Library of Science founder Michael Eisen—on Thursday, 10 October, at 3 p.m. EDT on this page to chat about the dark side of open access and the future of academic publishing with Science contributing correspondent Jon Cohen.
