Nowadays, Open Science & Open Access are buzzwords in academic publishing. As researchers and universities are expected to fully publish in Open Access in 2020, the biggest hurdle on their way is the paywall. Learn all about this paywall and how to deal with it during the Erasmus Open Access event 2018.

Join the conversation with Robert-Jan Smits, Open Access Envoy of the European Commission, on his Plan S to accelerate the transition to full and immediate Open Access to scientific publications.

Professor Pearl Dykstra will address her concerns on open access to publications and data as well as the dilemmas young researchers face.

Watch the European premiere of the documentary:  Paywall - The Business of Scholarship by Jason Schmitt, American documentary maker.
