Celebrating Open Access: October 24 and 25

Imagine you could access any scholarly article, use any existing data set in the world, or have access to educational resources – like textbooks – online and free of cost or access barriers.

On October 24 and 25, join McMaster University Library for events and presentations that will focus on how McMaster and other institutions, organizations and agencies in Ontario, and across the globe are working to make this vision a reality.

The sessions are being organized in recognition of International Open Access Week (Oct. 22 – 28), which celebrates advances in Open Access, Open Data and Open Education – all part of a worldwide movement to make scholarly publications, data, and a range of educational resources, available free of legal, financial or technical barriers for the benefit of researchers, students, and society as a whole.

For more information, please see the full schedule of events.

All events will be held in MILLS Library, Connections Room (L113).

Institutions and funding agencies around the world are adopting Open Access and Open Data policies that encourage researchers to make their scholarly work, including research data, freely available online in an open access journal, or a repository such as McMaster’s institutional repository, MacSphere.
