2016 International Open Access Week is celebrated from 24 – 28 October. You might ask, what is open access and why is it important? Open Access (OA) material is freely accessible to everyone and is important in allowing equitable access to research.  Open access can give researchers and students in developing countries access to information that they would otherwise not be able to afford.  It is also important because it takes your research to a much wider audience and makes it easier for other researchers to find and cite.

This year the focus is on Open in Action and how we as researchers, librarians and students can become more familiar with open access. We can do this by focusing on the small steps everyone can take to make openness in research a reality.

QUT will be hosting two events in International Open Access Week that will showcase these actions, the researchers who are leading by example, and the ways openness advances research and scholarship.

Register now to join us at these events and discover how you can become part of the open access movement.
