Open Access Week events
Posted on: October 11, 2019
Open Access Week 2019 is October 21-27.
“Open Access to information – the free, immediate, online access to the results of scholarly research, and the right to use and re-use those results as you need – has the power to transform the way research and scientific inquiry are conducted. It has direct and widespread implications for academia, medicine, science, industry, and for society as a whole.” — from http://www.openaccessweek.org/page/about
