International Open Access Week is quickly approaching on October 24-30!
This year’s theme of “Open in Action” is all about taking concrete steps to open up research and scholarship and encouraging others to do the same.
To provide us with ideas for taking action and to measure the community’s collective efforts, the OA team created an action portal where we can indicate which steps we’ll take to support Open Access. During the week, the OA team will follow up with us about the actions we’ve selected and count our commitment along with those from the rest of the community to demonstrate the momentum for Open Access.
We can also help by spreading the word about the actions we can take to open up our work and to encourage others to do the same. Consider retweeting this message here or posting message about Open Access Week on social media with the hashtag #OAWeek. More background on each of the actions listed on the portal through the Open Access Week website can be found here.
