This month the series is talking all things related to open access, covering issues such as article processing charges (APCs) to transformative agreements and the difference between the licenses, how to tell if a journal is legitimate or predatory, and even discussing how and when others can reuse your work.

Hosted by SAGE’s Jessica Lipowski and Jonathan Collin, the hour-long webinar will provide essential guidance for anyone hoping to get published in an academic journal.
