Open Access Week 2020

open access week banner 2020

International Open Access Week is an opportunity to take action in making openness the default for research—to raise the visibility of scholarship, accelerate research.

The RDMWG is dedicated to fostering equitable systems of open research and scholarship that serve the needs of our diverse community.

Open Access Week is a time to celebrate achievements in open access and learn more by hearing from practitioners and experts. While open access generally refers to publications, Open Scholarship is about making all research outputs, including data, more visible, and about sharing knowledge more widely.

Thank you for joining (virtually) Harvard Library Open Access Week 2020! You can now access the presentations and materials from week's sessions on the Open Science Framework Project Site
