Open Access Week 2017

When: October 23-39 2017

What: Open Access is the freely immediate online availability of research articles coupled with the rights to use these articles fully in the digital environment. Open Access Explained

Theme: This year's theme is an invitation to answer the question of what concrete benefits can be realized by making scholarly outputs openly available. "Open in order to…" serves as a prompt to move beyond talking about openness in itself and focus on what openness enables - in an individual discipline, at a particular institution, or in a specific context; then to take action to realize these benefits.
Open in order to increase the impact of my scholarship. Open in order to enable more equitable participation in research. Open in order to improve public health. These are just a few examples of how this question can be answered.

How does Dykes Library support OA? KU's One University Open Access (OA) Author Fund is designed to heighten the visibility and accessibility of the University's scholarship.
Additionally, publication consultations through the Research and Learning Department and through the One University OA Fund team are available for researchers to identify high-quality open access journals to publish within and to navigate questions of copyright and authors' rights.
