"Paywall" Film Screening and Panel Discussion

The German Psychological Society (DGPs), the Frankfurt Open Science Initiative and ZPID - Leibniz Institute for Psycholgy information present the movie "Paywall - The Business of Scholarship" followed by a panel discussion.

"Paywall" is a documentary which focuses on the need for open access to research and science, questions the rationale behind the $25.2 billion a year that flows into for-profit academic publishers, examines the 35-40% profit margin associated with the top academic publisher Elsevier and looks at how that profit margin is often greater than some of the most profitable tech companies like Apple, Facebook and Google.
