The Rise of the Mega Journal: Is bigger better? 

The mega journal: open access, peer-reviewed, and typically defined by a very large number of papers published compared to other scholarly journals. In recent years a number of commercial publishers, scholarly and professional societies, and university presses have branched out into this relatively new form of scholarly communication.

Dr. Nandita Quaderi 
Publishing Director, Open Research, Nature Publishing Group 

Dr. Deborah Sweet 
Editor and Publishing Director, Cell Press 

Dr. Jason Wilde 
Chief Publishing Officer, American Institute of Physics 

Moderator: Scott Warren 
Associate Dean for Research and Scholarship at Syracuse University Libraries

Sunday February 1st, 8:30am – 10:00am, Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, Room 156C
