SPARC (The Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition) has announced that the theme for this year’s 8th International Open Access Week will be “Open for Collaboration.”
The theme highlights the ways in which collaboration both inspires and advances the Open Access movement—from the partnerships behind launching initiatives such as PLOS and ImpactStory, to the working relationships the community has established with policymakers that have delivered Open Access policies around the world. The theme also emphasizes the ways in which Open Access enables new avenues for collaboration between scholars by making research available to any potential collaborator, anywhere, any time.
This year’s Open Access Week will be held from 19 to 25 October 2015.
