Open Access Week

International Open Access Week, October 19-25, 2020, a global event now in its thirteenth year, is a time for open access advocates to engage with the wider community about the potential benefits of open access towards the free sharing of information and learning resources. This year's theme Open with Purpose? Taking Action to Build Structural Equity and Inclusion puts equity at the centre of this work.

The Schedule of Events is designed to share what we have learned with colleagues in the hopes of inspiring wider participation to help make openness the default in scholarship and research. As the foundation of Open Education, Open Educational Resources (OER) play a key role in this year's presentations. Open Access Week is an opportunity to engage in coversations and learn new skills to help build more equitable foundations for opening knowledge. We hope that you will join us at these events!

More information about open access and open journal publishing can be found on this slide show.
