Event description

Description

You're invited to a screening of Paywall: The Business of Scholarship on Friday, September 7, 2018, at the MIT Media Lab.

Paywall is a documentary film that investigates the need for open access to research and science, and questions the rationale behind the $25.2 billion a year that flows into for-profit academic publishers. Please note that the film will begin promptly at 5:00 PM.

The screening will be followed by a panel discussion featuring filmmaker Jason Schmitt; Chris Bourg, Director of MIT Libraries; Joi Ito, Director the MIT Media Lab; and Peter Suber, Director of the Harvard Office of Scholarly Communication. A reception with wine, cheese, desserts, and non-alcoholic beverages will follow the panel.
