This week is Open Access Week, a global event now in its 10th year, which celebrates and promotes open access to scholarly publications and data.
The theme this year is ‘open in order to…’ which asks us to think about the concrete benefits of making research open access – to move beyond talking about openness in itself and focus on what openness enables – for an individual discipline, at a particular institution, or in a specific context; then to take action to realise these benefits. See open in order to for some inspiring examples and be sure to follow the conversation on Twitter #OAWeek.
