In this episode, we are talking about what it's like to be an open-access publisher and what the future might bring. Our guest is Paul Peters, chief executive at Hindawi publishing - one of the world’s largest publishers of peer-reviewed, fully Open Access journals.

Peters sheds some lights into how Hindawi made the transition to Open Access, and how the company has grown. He also talks about current policies within the EU and how this will affect his company. He also briefly touches upon the topic of how Open Access is perceived outside of Europe, and how there is a different motivation for being Open Access in Asia and in North America.

The host of this episode is Erik Lieungh.
