International Open Access Week

International Open Access Week

For International Open Access Week 2022 we hosted a full week of events to celebrate and explore the benefits of Open Access. The Open Research Team secured some of the leading advocates within the Open Access arena to share their thoughts, insights and predictions with us.

The sessions were carefully curated with the full UoA research community in mind to inspire you whether you are at the early stages of your career, a widely published Principal Investigator, or somewhere in between. International Open Access Week flew by but all our events were recorded and added to our new YouTube Open Research playlist
