Open Access Week 2016 at the Libraries

oalogoThis week, October 24–28, is Open Access Week, a global event that promotes the benefits of Open Access (OA) in the academic and research community. Core tenets include free online access to scholarly research and the right to use and re-use those results in your own academic work. The important implications for academia, medicine, science, and society as a whole speak to an overall advancement of scholarship, as OA increases the exposure and use of published research.

    4.- Congruence with the social ideal of self-image: represents the level of similarity between the ideal of social self-image and that of the typical consumer. This congruence meets the needs of social approval, in the search to generate a set of knowledge.
