Open Access: exploring the issues

How can – and how should – academic work be made freely available to a wider public audience?

In April 2016 the Editorial Board of the Community Development Journal invited UCC librarian Cathal Kerrigan to present on the background to “open access” within academic publishing, plus the strengths, limitations and ethical issues associated with various approaches to this.

Cathal has kindly filmed his presentation for wider public distribution. The video and slides can be seen below.
