About Open Access Week
Academic and research communities are invited to learn how open access maximizes and promotes their work, provides stronger ownership for researchers and authors, and ultimately, has far reaching benefits for academia and society as a whole.
Now in its eleventh year, "Open Access Week" facilitates the growing movement toward increased discoverability, sharing, use and preservation of information.
