In this episode, Josh Bolick, Scholarly Communication Librarian in the University of Kansas Shulenburger Office of Scholarly Communication & Copyright, discusses his article "Leveraging Elsevier’s Creative Commons License Requirement to Undermine Embargo," which was published in the Journal of Copyright in Education and Librarianship. Bolick begins by explaining how academic publishing works in most academic disciplines, other than law. In a nutshell, scholars do all the work and academic publishers make all the money, while also locking up scholarship from public access. Among other things, academic publishers put long embargoes on the distribution of the articles they publish. Bolick observes that one major academic published, Elsevier, recently adopted a Creative Common license requirement for its authors, and argues that the license actually enables authors to avoid the embargo. He closes by reflecting on how open access publishing is likely to develop in the future of academic publishing. Bolick is on Twitter at @JoshBolick.This episode was hosted by Brian L.
