Despite the Open Access (OA) movement’s progress over the past few decades, publishing costs, faculty understanding, and the nuances of Open Access can cause challenges. In this presentation, we will discuss some of the more persistent challenges of Open Access issues including: faculty understanding of OA, the publishing system related to tenure and the ever-increasing cost of gold OA, and the nuances of OA publishing such as gold vs. green, embargos, versions of the published document, etc. We welcome attendees to share their challenges as well!
