International Open Access Week, 2022

Now in its fifteenth year, International Open Access Week is being observed from October 24 through October 30th, 2022.  Sponsored by the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition (SPARC) and various partners, Open Access Week is an opportunity for advocates of open access to engage with their communities regarding the benefits of open scholarship and research.  (For an introduction to key concepts of open access and the role it can play in scholarly communications, see this overview from SPARC.)

The theme for International Open Access Week 2022 is "Open for Climate Justice."  The goal of this year's theme is to draw awareness to ways in which open sharing of research results can help address inequities surrounding the impacts of climate change and our response to them.
