Curious about publishing in an OA journal but worried about the quality of the publication? Confused over article processing fees, and the different types of open access formats currently available (ex., Gold, green, and hybrid)? This workshop will provide an overview of OA Publishing, including types of OA policies, resources to evaluate publishers and journals, and how OA can promote your research.

Featured Panelists: 

Theodore S. Owers, III and Matter Miller (Carver Darden)

Greg Stein and Shafin Khan (Tulane Office of Technology Tansfer and IP Development)

Elizabeth Townsend-Gard (Tulane Law School)



Panelists will share their experiences with fair use publishing and access - they will talk about the challenges in determining if fair use applies, how to produce information with fair use in mind and the challenges of complying with fair use laws.

The intersection of environmental protections and human rights has become a critical point for advocacy and activism. It is difficult today to talk about human rights, without also discussing environmental justice, climate change, and the rights of nature. The reverse is also true. Around the world, activists, lawyers, and judges have begun developing new and creative methods for addressing this nexus of environmental justice and human rights, and, in the process, are working to reframe how we think about the human-nature relationship.
