International Open Access Week24 October 2016
24-30 October 2016
International Open Access Week is a global, community-driven week of action to open up access to research.
The event is celebrated by individuals, institutions and organizations across the world. SPARC and partners in the student community established International Open Access Week in 2008.
The aim of this week is to raise the visibility of the many ways Libraries support open access, research and education.
What is open access?
Nick Shockey (Director of student advocacy at the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition, SPARC), and Jonathan Eisen (Professor at the University of California Davis, USA) take us through the world of open access publishing and explain just what it's all about.
Produced in partnership with the Right to Research Coalition, the Scholarly Publishing and Resources Coalition and the National Association of Graduate-Professional Students.
