open access week

International Open Access Week will be celebrated October 20 - 26, 2014. Activities at universities around the world will promote the merits of open access in scholarly communications to students and faculty. The 2014 OA theme is "Generation Open".

What Is Open Access?

Open Access is a growing international movement that uses the Internet to throw open the locked doors that once hid knowledge. Encouraging the unrestricted sharing of research results with everyone, the Open Access movement is gaining ever more momentum around the world as research funders and policy makers put their weight behind it.

Access to knowledge is power!
