  Open Access Week: October 18-22, 2010                                


This wiki is the George Mason community's source for information about Open Access Week. View a schedule of events and find resources for students, faculty, and staff. Get involved and discover how you can help bring awareness of Open Access to George Mason University.



About Open Access Week


Open Access Week draws worldwide attention to the unrestricted sharing of scholarly research and materials for the advancement and enjoyment of all. Open Access (OA) literature is freely accessible online--maximizing the visibility, use, and impact of research. Building on the success of last year's Open Access Day, University Libraries' participation in OA Week offers students, faculty, staff, and the public an opportunity to learn more about Mason's OA initiatives.


Watch Open Access 101, a brief introductory video to Open Access created by SPARC, here.
