Open Access Week celebrates the Open Research movement and runs from 21 to 27 October 2019. Its aim is to inspire wider participation to create a new norm in scholarship and research. It can drive innovation and support researchers with developing solutions to tackle global challenges.
Open Access is a worldwide movement and will allow scholarly work to be made online, in a digital format, at no charge to the reader.
Anne Keddie, Academic Librarian has written an overview of Open Access publishing and its benefits, which is available on the Library’s News blog. This is a great starting point for academics and researchers who are interested in making their research open and covers the Green Open Access route supported at the university by use of our institutional repository.
You can find additional information on the Library’s Research Support Guide. Follow the Library on Twitter for more updates during Open Access Week.
