Open Access Week - 24 to 30 October

Open Access week is a global event, now in its 5th year, promoting Open Access as a new norm 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 them – 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.

To celebrate Open Access Week, the Library has developed an Open Access Publishing LibGuide to explain more about Open Access within the JCU context. 

For more information, contact Jackie Wolstenholme, the Research Services Librarian.
