Open Access Week is a yearly international celebration that aims to increase awareness about open access (OA). Most academic work is locked up behind a paywall, available only to those who are affiliated with a college or university. Libraries pay publishers millions of dollars a year to provide students and faculty with access to this content. However, many people from outside of the university community could also benefit from access to cutting-edge scholarship. OA scholarship is completely free to read and reuse. Funders, colleges, universities, libraries, scholars, and students across the globe support OA. Learn more about the importance of openly available scholarship at one of our events.
