Abstract

In a recent article in the Chronicle of Higher Education, Lindsay Ellis (2019) writes that “we are now at a turning point for scholarly publishing where the scales have been tipped towards open access;’ however, Ellis notes that one of the major challenges is that "departments largely do not consider open-access publication in their promotion-and-tenure decisions." This lightning talk will consider barriers towards better integrating open access in the tenure and promotion process, and discuss examples of universities that are beginning this work.
