Open Acces Week 2012

A global event now entering its sixth year, Open Access Week (October 22 to 28) is an opportunity for the academic and research community to learn about the potential benefits of Open Access (OA). It is great to share ideas with colleagues, and to inspire wider participation in establishing Open Access as a new norm in scholarship and research. Research funding agencies, academic institutions, research organizations, non-profits, businesses, and others use as a valuable platform to launch expanded open-access publication funds, institution-wide open-access policies, and new reports on the societal and economic benefits of OA.
