Cambridge University Press, part of the University of Cambridge, is pleased to invite Cambridge Postdocs to a series of sessions about publishing. Experienced publishers from a range of academic areas will aim to answer your questions about changes in international academic publishing, submitting journals articles and book proposals, REF criteria and peer review. They will also give practical guidance on ensuring that a submission has the best possible chance of acceptance.
These informal lunchtime sessions will be hosted by the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs in the Postdoc Centre @ 16 Mill Lane. They will be ‘brown bag’ style (bring your own lunch), with tea and coffee provided. The first, ‘Academic Book Publishing in the Humanities’ takes place on 3 February. Watch out for new sessions, which will be posted on the OPDA website and PdOC Society newsletters.

Matt Day, Head of Open Access and Data Publishing
What you most need to know about Open Access
Increasingly these days, funders and institutions such as Cambridge University have rules and guidelines on the accessibility of publicly funded research. Open Access is a fairly simple concept that can become complex in practice. Matt will give an overview of what Open Access is and what it means for you as an author or editor of books and journals.
Matthew Day is the Head of Open and Data Publishing at Cambridge University Press. Over the course of 20 years he has worked on books, journals and scientific databases.
