Children’s Research Institute Seminar Series: “The Contemporary Crisis in Academic Journal Publishing — We are All in This Together!”

November 12 @ 12:15 pm - 1:30 pm

“The Contemporary Crisis in Academic Journal Publishing — We are All in This Together!”

Sue Tolleson-Rinehart, PhD

Following the University of California’s system-wide decision to cancel subscriptions to Elsevier among its 10 campuses, the debate surrounding academic journal publishing—and its cost—has come sharply into focus for many universities. Please join Dr. Tolleson-Rinehart for a talk on the “open access wars” and what they mean for academic publishing at large.

Dr. Tolleson-Rinehart’s primary research interests are in health politics and health policy as well as mentoring junior faculty, trainees, and students. She uses her extensive social science training and research experience to help colleagues engage in the use of new research methods, especially in survey research, qualitative methods, and policy analysis.
