Concordia’s Library and Office of Research are co-sponsoring a free screening of the new documentary film Paywall: the Business of Scholarship.

Vending machine

The film, which presents informative and thought-provoking perspectives about the academic publishing industry, open access, and the research lifecycle will be followed by an audience Q&A session.

A panel of librarians working on open access research initiatives and Dominique Michaud (Director, Research Development, Office of Research) will answer questions and facilitate discussion. We will address open access requirements stemming from tri-agency funding as well as how you can take advantage of Concordia’s services and funding for open access publishing.

The film runs for about one hour with an additional hour allotted for discussion afterwards.
