Hybrid Journals: Transition to Full OA or Here to Stay?

Dear colleagues,

You are cordially invited to the ALCTS Scholarly Communications 
Interest Group Panel Discussion at the ALA Midwinter Meeting:

Topic: Hybrid Journals: Transition to Full Open Access or Here to Stay?
Date: Saturday, January 8, 2011
Time: 1:30pm - 3:30pm
Location: Room 23C, San Diego Convention Centre (SDCC)

It is now common that subscription-based journals provide the 
"author pays" option for authors to publish their research as 
open access articles.  What determines the pricing of the "author 
pays" option and how is this hybrid model faring?  Four panelists 
will discuss the development, perceptions, and future of the 
hybrid model of journal publishing from different perspectives. 
The moderator and panelists are:

Judy Luther, President, Informed Strategies

-- Philip Bourne, Professor of Pharmacology, University of 
California San Diego
-- Charles Eckman, University Librarian & Dean of Library 
Services, Simon Fraser University, Canada
-- Patricia Hudson, Senior Marketing Manager, Oxford Journals, 
Oxford University Press
-- Dan Morgan, Executive Publisher, Psychology & Cognitive 
Science, Elsevier

An open forum will follow the panelists' presentations. 
Participants are welcome to raise questions, exchange ideas, and 
explore possibilities for scholarly publishing.  Please join us 
for a constructive and thought-provoking conversation on Jan.
