Open Access Week, October 18-24, 2010

Open Access Week is a world-wide celebration intended to raise awareness of the potential benefits of open access in scholarship and research. “Open Access to information – the free, immediate, online access to the results of scholarly research, and the right to use and re-use those results as you need – has the power to transform the way research and scientific inquiry are conducted.  It has direct and widespread implications for academia, medicine, science, industry, and for society as a whole.”
