Open Access and the Social Sciences: Changing rules, roles, & responsibilities
Gregg Gordon, President of SSRN, the Social Science Research Network, will discuss how this leading open repository promotes innovation through providing access to information.
Learn how the Social Science Research Network (SSRN), the number one open repository and scholarly community site for economics, business, government, and other social sciences and humanities, has influenced the practices of sharing research over the past two decades. Gregg Gordon, President of SSRN, will offer insights into the complex relationships among authors, publishers, academic institutions such as Dartmouth, and open repositories such as SSRN. These roles and relationships are shifting with growing expectations to provide broader, more open access to the scholarly literature. He’ll address what will change and what will remain the same with the acquisition of SSRN by Elsevier. There will be opportunities to engage in a discussion of new directions in the open dissemination of the social science literature after the presentation.
Gregg Gordon speaks around the world and writes regularly about scholarly research. Most recently, he co-authored The Question of Data Integrity in Article-Level Metrics published by PLOS Biology in August 2016.
