Open Access Week is an important opportunity to catalyze new conversations and create connections across and between communities to build more equitable foundations for opening knowledge.

Learn about  Open Educational Resources (OER) - teaching, learning and research materials in the public domain that permits no-cost access. 

Schedule a Zoom meeting about Open Science Publishing.                   

"Open access (OA) means free access to information and unrestricted use of electronic resources for everyone. Any kind of digital content can be OA, from texts and data to software, audio, video, and multi-media. A publication is considered in Open access if:

  •  its content is universally and freely accessible, at no cost to the reader, via the Internet or otherwise;
  • the author or copyright owner irrevocably grants to all users, for an unlimited period, the right to use, copy, or distribute the article, on condition that proper attribution is given;
  • it is deposited, immediately, in full and in a suitable electronic form, in at least one widely and internationally recognized open access repository committed to open access."  (UNESCO)
