Paywall: The Business of Scholarship
Join us to screen the film in person or watch on your own!
To kick off Open Access Week, the Yale Film Archive and the Scholarly Communication and Information Policy unit at Yale Library invites you to view or join us in-person for a screening of the film Paywall: The Business of Scholarship. This documentary focuses on Open Access in academic scholarship and research. The film calls out the billions of dollars that flow into for-profit academic publishers and examines the huge profit margin associated with top academic publishers, like Elsevier. Watch on your own at: Paywall: The Business of Scholarship or register to join us in the newly renovated Yale Film Archive (space limited).

What does the OSTP memo mean for your research?
In August 2022, the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy released a memo stating that all federal funding agencies must develop or update policies for researchers and scholars to provide immediate open access to data and scholarship funded by their agencies. As a researcher what do you need to know about this memo? What does it mean for your research, scholarship, and data? How can administrators and librarians support your work?
