Be ‘Open in Action’ during Open Access Week
Welcome to International Open Access Week (24th – 30th October). During this week the University Library will be offering a number of opportunities for you to find out more about the Open Access movement, the benefits of making your research open and how the Library can help you in the process.
This is a global event encouraging the academic and research community to learn about the benefits of Open Access, share what they’ve learned with colleagues, and help inspire wider participation in Open Access.
