Just when you’ve found the perfect article for your paper, you hit it: the paywall. Academic publishing is big business. More than $25 billion a year flows into for-profit academic publishers like Elsevier, some of whom have profit margins of 35%, bigger than Apple, Facebook, and Google. The documentary Paywall: The Business of Scholarship explores the high dollars in this industry and the possible solution of open access publishing.
Join PSU Library for a free screening of Paywall during Open Access Week.
