Open Access Week 2019
October 21 @ 8:00 am - October 27 @ 5:00 pm
The International Open Access Week 2019 will take place from October 21 until October 27.
Theme: “Open for Whom? Equity in Open Knowledge”
This year’s theme will build on the groundwork laid last year when discussions focused on “Designing Equitable Foundations for Open Knowledge.” The 2018 theme highlighted the importance of making a central commitment to equity as we transition toward new systems for sharing knowledge, and the past twelve months have only seen the pace of that transition increase. Because of this, the Open Access Week Advisory Committee decided it was important to focus on equity again in 2019—to deepen our conversations about being inclusive by design and to turn those conversations into action.
