Open Access Week 2023: October 23-29
















Open access refers to the choice made by scholars to publish and make their works "free to read" for everyone, with few, if any, restrictions on reuse.  Open access contrasts with traditional models of "restricted access" publishing in which copies of works are only available to paying customers.

Choose an event you would like to attend online from the list of worldwide Events during this week.

The EU Libraries invite you to a screening and discussion of the documentary Paywall: The Business of Scholarship,  which questions the rationale behind the $25.2 billion annual profit margin of for-profit academic publishers and which accords with this year's OA Week theme of Community over Commercialization.
