Manage episode 355953554 series 2917057
Ben Denne (Director of Publishing, Academic Books, Cambridge UP) joins Avi to discuss how Open Access quickly became a predominant form of academic publishing in the last decade, what issues OA raises for the publishing industry, how OA impacts book publishing and some of the creative solutions for alternative models, including CUP's novel "Flip it Open" program.
We also discuss Ben's journey from writing children's books to presiding over one of the most important academic publishers in the world and the responsibility behind the position. Finally, stay tuned until the end for some interesting ideas regarding alternative publishing forms that break free of the 'book' and 'journal.'
Avi Staiman is the founder and CEO of Academic Language Experts.
