Event: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly: Navigating the Wild West of Open Access Publishing
Date: Tuesday, October 20, 2015
Location: Hayden Library, Room 133, Tempe campus
Description: There’s a “Gold rush” happening in the new frontier of open access publishing! As publishers experiment with new business models, there’s an explosion of new journal titles and publishers. In the tradition of all boomtowns, outlaws move in as well as upstanding citizens - and they often look alike. With no real marshall in town, how can researchers sort out the good guys from the bad?
Join Scholarly Communications Librarian Anali Perry for a tour of the open access journal landscape, followed by a panel discussion with these fabulous guests!
Katie Hinde, Associate Professor, School of Human Evolution and Social Change
Katie Hinde earned a B.A. in Anthropology from the University of Washington in 1999, a Ph.D. in Anthropology from UCLA in 2008, and was a post-doctoral scholar in Neuroscience at the California National Primate Research Center, UC Davis from 2009-2011. Since 2002, Hinde has investigated the first substance a mammal has evolved to consume: mother’s milk. In her Comparative Lactation Lab they investigate how mother’s milk contributes to infant development trajectories in socially complex taxa, particularly humans and monkeys. In addition to journal publications, Hinde co-edited “Building Babies: Primate Developmental Trajectories in Proximate and Ultimate Perspective” released by Springer in 2013. Hinde is an associate editor and writer for SPLASH! Milk Science Update, executive council member for the International Society for Research in Human Milk and Lactation, and showcases research on mother’s milk, breastfeeding, and lactation for the general public, clinicians, and researchers at her blog “Mammals Suck… Milk!”

Kevin McGraw, Professor, Director, School of Life Sciences Undergraduate Research Program
Kevin McGraw is an integrative behavioral ecologist who primarily studies the colors of animals such as birds to understand the costs, benefits and evolution of visual signals. He and his students use a variety of approaches from fields including biochemistry, nutrition, physiology, immunology and endocrinology to determine what factors control color intensity. They couple these approaches with behavioral, ecological and evolutionary studies, both in the field and the lab, to evaluate how and why animal colors function in visual communication.

Jason Raymond, Assistant Professor, School of Earth and Space Exploration
Jason Raymond studies the origin and co-evolution of life and our planet, as well as the metabolic systems upon which life is built. His research ranges from using evolutionary genomics to understand key evolutionary transitions on the ancient Earth, and molecular genetic approaches for investigating the function and diversity of microbial life in extreme environments.
