What is Open Access Week?
Open Access Week is an annual scholarly communication event focusing on open access to information. It is an online and off line global event that falls October 24-30 this year. Open Access Week was initiated as a movement by the scientific research community to provide unrestricted access to the results of research and scholarship. It was partly inspired by the changes in information technology and the way in which information could be easily shared through the Internet.
|SPARC - The Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition is a catalyst for change in Open Access education. They organize Open Access week annually.|
