Open Access Week is here!
This international event celebrates publishing initiatives that make scholarly research accessible online to anyone, anytime, anywhere in the world.
The theme of this year’s Open Access Week is “Open in Action.” Everyone from institutions to scholars are being encouraged to move beyond discussing the concept of Open Access, to putting it into practice.
Whether you are a faculty member looking to make your research more accessible to everyone or, you are a student interested in research that is freely available once you are finished your program, Open Access may be of interest to you.
