Open Access: Open Access Week 2014

Open Access Week 2014

Open Access Week, a global event now entering its eighth year, is an opportunity for the academic and research community to continue to learn about the potential benefits of Open Access, to share what they’ve learned with colleagues, and to help inspire wider participation in helping to make Open Access a new norm in scholarship and research.  “Open Access” to information – the free, immediate, online access to the results of scholarly research, and the right to use and re-use those results as you need – has the power to transform the way research and scientific inquiry are conducted. It has direct and widespread implications for academia, science, industry, publishing, and for society as a whole.

You are invited to take advantage of a free event to discuss the possibilities open access publishing affords authors across a variety of disciplines. Join us on Monday, October 20th from 9am to 3:30pm in Teaching Academy room 117 for a free event focusing on Open Access publishing perspectives including…

  • Live online discussion with Peter Suber, director of the Harvard Office for Scholarly Communication
  • Representatives from Springer, Gale, IEEE, and Taylor & Francis with information on open access publishing options and editorial processes
  • Discussions with six UCF Faculty members on their experiences with open access
  • Discussions with colleagues from area institutions
