Open Access Publishing, Impact Factor and other Bibliometric Indicators, and Faculty Career Implications

Thursday, November 20, 2014
4:30 to 6:00 pm
Coffee, tea and light refreshments
Wood Building, Club B

Guest speaker: Andrew Berin, Publishing Director, Elsevier.
Garrett M. Brodeur, MD, Member, Department of Pediatrics COAP, and Member, Perelman School of Medicine COAP

As open access publishing becomes common practice, how can faculty balance prestige, cost and career implications in deciding where to submit manuscripts? Does the Impact Factor still carry the same weight with COAP and the scientific community at large? How are some of the newer bibliometric indicators viewed? Come join us for a discussion of the new scientific publishing landscape with a prominent publisher and a COAP member.
