Every year we celebrate a week of open access to encourage the sharing of research in an open and impactful way. This year, the theme “Community over Commercialization” focuses on just that. This year encourages us to have a candid conversation about which approaches to open scholarship prioritize the best interests of the public and the academic community—and which do not.
Celebrate Open Access Week with us by reviewing the Open Access Library Guide and attending a virtual workshop:
- Open Access Publishing Pre-Prints and Post-Prints: The Legalities of How to Use Them to Increase Citations Online, 1 p.m. Oct. 18.
- Rights and Wrongs of Copyright in Publisher Agreements, 1 p.m. Oct. 26.
- Predatory Publishing: The Dark Side of Open Access, 1 p.m. Nov. 1.
