Open Access Week 2021
September 20, 2021

The University of California, Riverside Library will host Open Access Week 2021, as part of the global event called International Open Access Week.

It Matters How We Open Knowledge: Building Structural Equity" is the 2021 theme. The event series will kick off on Monday, Oct. 25, with three workshops for the 2021 event.

Open Access Week is an opportunity for the academic and research community to learn about the potential benefits of sharing what they’ve learned with colleagues, and to help inspire wider participation in helping to make “open access” a new norm in scholarship, research and data planning and preservation. The Open Access movement is made of up advocates (librarians, researchers, publishers, etc.) who promote the free, immediate, and online publication of research.

This will be the eleventh International Open Access Week program hosted by the UCR Library. The Open Access Week workshops are free and open to the public.
