Are you an advocate for free access to publications, education materials, and data? Then you’re an advocate for Open Access!
The theme of Open Access Week this year (October 20–26) is “Generation Open.” The focus is on “highlighting the importance of students and early career researchers as advocates for change in the short-term, through institutional and governmental policy, and as the future of the Academy upon whom the ultimate success of the Open Access movement depends.”
That means you! Graduate students *are* the future of the Academy. The extent to which you, and other early career researchers, support making research results freely accessible will affect not only your careers but the whole academic landscape.
Come join a discussion of Open Access on Friday, October 24th, 10-11 am in the Biomedical Library Events Room. Speakers will include Eric Bakovic, Linguistics Professor and Chair of the Committee on Library; Maryann Martone, Neurosciences Professor in Residence and Force 11 President; and Nancy Stimson, Scholarly Communications Coordinator for the Library. Coffee and snacks will be provided.
If you have any questions about this event, please contact Nancy Stimson at email@example.com or (858) 534-6321.
