Symposium: Opening Access: Writing, Reviewing, and Editing in the Social Sciences and Humanities

April 5-7, 2019

Simon Fraser University, Harbour Centre, 515 West Hastings Street, Vancouver

With changing funding requirements and growing public demand, Open Access Publishing is becoming part of the mainstream. But is removing paywalls enough to open up scholarly publishing? This symposium brings together journal editors based at SFU with editors of US and Canadian journals who are working to remove barriers to publishing and reading social sciences and humanities research. Themes addressed include work with multilingual and bilingual authors and audiences, sustaining relationships with stakeholder communities, promoting writing in multiple genres, and multimodal communication.

Organizing Team: Michael Hathaway, Sonja Luehrmann, Kathleen Millar, Stacy Pigg, Gaelle Planchenault
