Being an Open Access Publisher

What is it like to run a company that only publish Open Access Peer Reviewed Journals?

In this episode of the Podcast Open Science Talk, CEO of Hindawi Publishing, Paul Peters joins us. Hindawi is one of the world’s largest publishers of peer-reviewed, fully Open Access journals.

He is also the president of OASPA -Open Access Scholarly Publishers Association and a board member of Crossref, a company who tries to makes research outputs easy to find, cite, link, and assess.

Company in transition

Peters sheds some lights into how Hindawi made the transition to Open Access, and how the company has grown. He also talks about current policies within the EU and how this will affect his company. He also briefly touches upon the topic of how Open Access is perceived outside of Europe, and how there is a different motivation for being Open Access in Asia and in North America.

He was recently a keynote speaker at the Munin Conference, and you can see his talk here.
