Celebrate Open Access

Open Access Week (20-26 October 2014) is an opportunity for the academic and research community to continue to learn about the potential benefits of Open Access to scholarly research, to share what they've learned with colleagues, and to help inspire wider participation in helping to make Open Access a new norm in scholarship and research.

The theme for this year's Open Access Week is Generation Open. This theme highlights the involvement of students and early career researchers in the shift in the scholarly communication landscape towards open.

You can find out more about events from around the world on the Global Open Access Week site.

Look for KUMC's Dykes Library sponsored OA events later in November. Please go here for a list of KU/KUMC authors who were awarded KU One University Open Access funds for publishing in open access journals.
