Dean of Libraries to speak on open access

Opentober main event Oct. 23

What does open access (free, immediate, online access to the results of open access posterscholarly research) mean to the world of scholarly publishing?  Open access:

  • has the power to transform the way research and scientific inquiry are conducted;
  • has direct and widespread implications for academia, medicine, science, industry, and for society as a whole;
  • gives rights to all to use articles to benefit innovation, discovery, education, in order to better our world.
