Open Access Week 2016

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Today is the first day of Open Access Week. We’re joining SPARC and dozens of other organizations all week to discuss the importance of open access.

Open access is the practice of making research and other materials freely available online, ideally under licenses that allow anyone to share and adapt them. By removing barriers like subscription fees or institutional connections, open access publishing lets more people participate in science and culture.

There are events and workshops on open access taking place all over the world this week. Find out what’s going on in your area and get involved!

Check back all week for new #OAWeek content from EFF. We’ll update this list with links to new posts:

It’s Not Too Late. Let’s Pass an Open Access Law This Year.

When the public pays for research, the public should have free access to that research. You shouldn’t have to buy expensive journal subscriptions or academic database access in order to read research that was paid for with federal funding.
