Open Access Week: Oct. 19-25, 2015

October 21, 2015

Open Access Week is here! Open Access 2015

This international event celebrates publishing initiatives that make scholarly research accessible online to anyone, anytime, anywhere in the world.

This is accomplished through Open Access (OA) journals, institutional repositories, self-archiving and a lot of hard work by academics, librarians and a variety of others who believe in free, universal access to research.

The theme of this year’s Open Access Week is “Open for Collaboration.”  In the spirit of the theme of collaboration events such as the “Wikipedia Open Access Week Edit-a-thon” will be taking place.
