Open Access Week


Open Access Week, October 21-27, 2019, is an international event now in its 10th year. It promotes education and advocacy for open access to research and information. “Open Access is free, immediate, offline availability of research articles, coupled with the rights to use these articles fully in the digital environment.” (SPARC) See Open Access Week to learn more.

Consider Open Access articles when you are researching. The Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) is a centralized place to search for peer-reviewed open access articles. Articles from the DOAJ are also included when you search in the library’s databases.
