Other resource: Open Access Week

Open Access Week is a web-based, international project celebrating OA in all its forms.

The project’s website, http://openaccessweek.org/, includes a list of events, a forum to discuss OA topics, and other resources.

Although the forum and resources are intended for a general audience not already familiar with OA publishing, the project serves a number of useful purposes for librarians/OA practitioners:

  • Allows for a way to publicize your own OA projects
  • Gives a glimpse of what other OA practitioners are doing around the world
  • Provides an opportunity to network

The project is organized by SPARC (the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition).
