Archived webinar on article takedowns from popular open access repository
An archived copy of the CopyTalk webinar “SSRN: Another enclosure of the commons” is now available. Originally webcast on October 6th by the Office for Information Technology Policy’s Copyright Education Subcommittee, our presenter was Michael Wolfe, Executive Director of the Authors Alliance. Mike talked about the Authors Alliance’s reaction to the unannounced removal of scholarly articles from the Social Science Research Network (SSRN), after its purchase by Elsevier. Included is a discussion of a set of principles Authors Alliance members expect when depositing articles in open access repositories like SSRN.
Plan ahead! One hour CopyTalk webinars occur on the first Thursday of every month at 11am Pacific/2 pm Eastern Time. Free!
