International Open Access Week
International Open Access Week has always been about action, and this year’s theme of "Open in Action" encourages all stakeholders to take concrete steps to make their own work more openly available and encourage others to do the same. From posting pre-prints in a repository to supporting colleagues in making their work more accessible, this year’s Open Access Week will focus on moving from discussion to action in opening up our system for communicating research.
Established by SPARC (the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition) and partners in the student community in 2008, International Open Access Week is an opportunity to take action in making openness the default for research—to raise the visibility of scholarship, accelerate research, and turn breakthroughs into better lives.
Join SFU Library during Open Access Week 2016 (October 24—30) for a series of events focused on learning more about and celebrating working in the open! The events are open to all and free, but seating is limited and registration is required.
