The Labor of Open
by Danielle Cooper, Leslie Chan, Emily Drabinski, Lisa Janicke Hinchliffe, Jojo Karlin, and Ela Przybylo
The Labor of Open is a zine project undertaken at the 2019 Triangle Scholarly Communications Institute to examine the labor of scholar-led independent open access publishing as an equity issue in scholarly communications. The goal of our work is to make scholarly communications more equitable by advocating for spaces where scholar-led approaches can flourish within a larger structural system. We invite others to join us by sharing this zine and its message far and wide. The zine is available at https://cuny.manifoldapp.org/projects/labor-of-open.
