UCSF Library Marks Open Access Week, October 24-30

International Open Access Week

Join the UCSF Library as we participate in the fifth annual Open Access Week from October 24-30. Learn about the benefits of open access publishing, which provides peer-reviewed journal articles free of charge on the web, making them easy to access, share, and use in subsequent research. Open access is an alternative to the traditional subscription model, which burdens the university as costs keep rising. The UCSF Library maintains memberships with several publishers to provide publication fee discounts for UCSF authors.

At UCSF, we'll host an information table during the lunch hour in Saunders Court on October 27. We'll be giving out free buttons, t-shirts, cookies, and more -- so stop by and talk with us about how, together, we can transform scholarly publishing. We’d love to hear how open access to scholarly research has impacted your work.

Hear about open access from one of its most prominent supporters, UCSF Nobel laureate Harold Varmus.
