Open Access Week Info Table at Medical Sciences Lobby (Parnassus)

Join the UCSF Library as we participate in this year's International Open Access Week! Open access (OA) is the free, immediate, online access to the published results of scholarly research and the right to use, share and re-use those results. This year’s OA Week theme, "Open in order to..." is an invitation to answer the question of what concrete benefits can be realized by making scholarly outputs openly available. 

Stop by the Information Table in the Medical Sciences Building Lobby on October 24 to learn more about open access and how it impacts you, or to participate in the campaign below. Oh, and we'll have free swag!

Throughout the month of October, the Library is running a campaign on what "Open in order to..." means to YOU!

“Open in order to…” serves as a prompt to move beyond talking about openness in itself and focus on what openness enables—in an individual discipline, at a particular institution, or in a specific context; then to take action to realize these benefits. A few examples of how this question can be answered are:
  • Open in order to increase the impact of my scholarship
  • Open in order to enable more equitable participation in research
  • Open in order to improve public health

Tell us what "Open in order to..." means to you via this form. We'll feature responses in OA Week promotions from members of the UCSF community between October 23-31.
