Open-access publishing has grown dramatically in the last five years. There have been many positive initiatives to help researchers communicate and access information in a sustainable way. However, as with many paradigm shifts, there are growing pains associated, including predatory journal practices and lack of clarity around terms and options.

In anticipation of Open Access Week October 21 to 27, Elsevier's Library Connect program is hosting a free webinar: "How librarians can help researchers navigate open access choices." In this live event, a surgeon/scholar, publisher and librarian will equip librarians and authors with the terminology, models and best practices of open access publishing and journal choices in general.

What metrics and standards should librarians and authors consider in determining in which journals to submit? Does the journal have an ethical publishing statement? How can you find journals that best fit the audience and research? What tools are out there to assist?
