The International Open Access Week is now entering its tenth year, and hegelpd is going to be part of it: from October 23rd to October 29th, we will be sharing with our readers an open access article a day.
What is Open Access (OA)? Open Access is the online, immediate, free of charge access to scholarly research material (journal articles, theses, book chapters etc.), free of most copyright and licensing restriction. (Click here for more information)
What is International Open Access Week (October 23rd – 29th, 2017): The OA week is a global event, now in its 10th edition, involving conferences, seminars, and various events all around the world focusing on the OA concept. It is organized to allow academic and research communities to learn about the potential benefits of OA, promote wider participation in this new movement, and enable circluation of research with improved accessibility. This years’ theme will be “open in order to”, an invitation to answer the question of what concrete benefits can be realized by making scholarly outputs openly available and a prompt to move beyond talking about openness in itself and focus on what openness enables—in an individual discipline, at a particular institution, or in a specific context. Here is the official website.
