Get Ready for Open Access Week 2018

OA Week 2018

OA Week 2018The 2018 International Open Access Week, “Designing Equitable Foundations for Open Knowledge,” will be held October 22-28, 2018. According to the 2018 Open Access Week Advisory Committee, “This year’s theme reflects a scholarly system in transition. While governments, funders, universities, publishers, and scholars are increasingly adopting open policies and practices, how these are actually implemented is still in flux. As open becomes the default, all stakeholders must be intentional about designing these new, open systems to ensure that they are inclusive, equitable, and truly serve the needs of a diverse global community. This year’s Open Access Week invites all interested stakeholders to participate in advancing this important work.”
