October 19-23 marks the first international Open Access Week.
Open Access Week is an opportunity to broaden awareness and understanding of Open Access to research, including access policies from all types of research funders, within the international higher education community and the general public. The now-annual event has been expanded from a single day to accommodate widespread global interest in the movement toward open, public access to scholarly research results.
Participate locally! Here is a list of Open Access Events courtesy of the University of Toronto Libraries Portal. See you there!
