International Open Access Week now in it's eight year, takes place from
20th -26th October 2014.
Open Access information is the free, immediate, online access to the results of scholarly research.
The aim of the week is to promote Open Access as a new norm in scholarship and research.
A global event, it is an opportunity for the academic and research community to continue to learn about the potential benefits of open access, and to share what they've learned.
