Publishing Your Dissertations: Open Access / Embargo / Other Options? What’s In Your Best Interest? A Panel Discussion

Abstract
Heated discussion erupted over the American Historical Association statement urging universities to allow PhD recipients to embargo their electronic dissertation for up to six years while they pursue a book contract. Harvard University Press responded with a blog post that made a convincing case that immediate open access could be advantageous. Some institutions have recently changed their open access and embargo policies. This panel will provide faculty, librarian, University Press, and graduate student views on this timely topic followed by Q&A. Light refreshments will be served.
