Open Access Mythbusters

OA Mythbusters is a fantastic short video series from the Open Access Books Network (OABN) community. Each video clip, lasting no more than 8 minutes, seeks to dispel common myths surrounding the publishing of open access books.

Episodes released cover false beliefs about issues with third-party material, not having a physical print copy, having to pay the publisher, plus many more.

The playlist can be accessed on the OABN YouTube channel:

With the mention of open access books in last week’s REF announcement, now is a good a time as any to put away your doubts and listen to the expert advice from librarians and research-led publishers.
