Open Access Week 2019: October 21-27

Join the UCSF Library in celebrating 2019 International Open Access Week! Open Access (OA) is the free, immediate, worldwide access to research publications and other outputs, and the right to share and re-use these outputs.

Open for whom? Equity in open knowledge

OA Week is in its 12th year, and this year’s theme is Open for whom? Equity in open knowledge. We invite you to both celebrate OA and to explore how open scholarship can ensure equitable participation in research communication.

This year’s events:

  1. Get a free Open Science UCSF T-shirt!
    • Contribute your ideas about how open access and open science can address inclusivity and equity in research via Twitter by copying @ucsf_library between October 21–25 or drop by our Information Table on October 22 to participate.
    • We’ll select ten UCSF Twitter participants and additional in-person contributors from UCSF.
  2. Participate in an open code workshop on October 24 from 3:30–5pm at Mission Bay
  3. Book office hours with an open access and publishing expert
  4. Check out @ucsf_library for OA-themed tweets
  5. Take part in two workshops at the ZSFG Library
