Open Access in October

Open Access (OA) is celebrated each year in October during OA Week. OA Week aims to bring awareness to the benefits of OA. It also helps encourage OA advancements and innovations throughout the global scholarly community. OA Week has been a worldwide event for nearly a decade, and it is organized by SPARC.

You might have noticed that our Talk Like a Pirate Day blog post mentioned OA Week. Our pirate-themed OA Week activities are coming up soon!
