Open Access Week at McGill


Virtual Workshops

This October, take part in 2020 International Open Access Week at McGill!

International Open Access Week brings the scholarly community together in the hopes of making Open Access a new norm in scholarship and research. The theme for this year’s International Open Access Week, to be held October 19-25, is “Open with Purpose: Taking Action to Build Structural Equity and Inclusion.” Now more than ever, the wider community must mobilize to make openness the default for research and to ensure that equity is at the center of this work.

From managing research data to open education resources, predatory publishing to open science, McGill Library is programming a series of virtual workshops in support of International Open Access Week and the growing OA movement designed to make research more widely available and increase its impact. Visit the Open Access Week Events Calendar for more info or check out the listing below to RSVP.
