Opentober main event Oct. 23
What does open access (free, immediate, online access to the results of scholarly 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.
