open access week 2021

The week of October 25-31 is International Open Access Week. What is Open Access Week? We're so glad you asked!

Let the Open Access Week Advisory Committee tell you: "Open Access Week is an opportunity for the global academic and research community to continue to learn about the potential benefits of Open Access, 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.
Open Access to information – the free, immediate, online access to the results of scholarly research, and the right to use and re-use those results as you need – has the power to transform the way research and scientific inquiry are conducted. It has direct and widespread implications for academia, medicine, science, industry, and for society as a whole."

To celebrate, check out some of the events and recorded videos from the Open Access Week website. Read some open access research published in CSU ScholarWorks institutional repository! And upload your own work to share with a broad audience.
