International Open Access Week 2016

International Open Access Week is a global, community-driven week promoting Open Access as the new default in scholarship and research. This year the celebration is held October 24-30 with the theme: "Open in Action." Hashtag: #OAweek

To be fair, International Open Access Week has always been about action, and this year’s theme encourages everyone to take concrete steps to make their own work more openly available and encourage others to do the same.

Established in 2008 by the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition (SPARC) and partners in the student community, International Open Access Week is an opportunity to take action. The “Open in Action” theme highlights the researchers, librarians, students, and others who have made a commitment to working in the open and how that decision has benefitted them—from researchers just starting their careers to those at the top of their field.

Open with Care - Melissa Highton
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oZhOz337tU8
At OER16 Melissa discusses the challenges for leadership in open educational resources, the role of universities in open knowledge communities and reflect upon the returns and costs associated with institutional investment. ‘There are shared areas of the internet, where we all have a civic responsibility to contribute and participate. The big cultural organisations such as universities have an important role to play’.

Open for Collaboration: Open Access Week 2015

Open Access Week is a global event in its ninth year and took place October 19-25, 2015. This is an opportunity for academic and research communities to learn about the 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.

The Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition (SPARC) has selected the theme for this year’s International Open Access Week: "Open for Collaboration."

Twitter hashtags: #oaweek and #OpenAccess
Organizer: @SPARC_NA

New in 2015

How is it, or can it be, in the interests of communities to invest in making their knowledge less exclusive and more public? What do they get in return? By placing (or re-placing) the interests of communities at the centre we can understand, and cut through, the apparent dilemma that “information wants to be free” but that it also “wants to be expensive”. By understanding the limits on open open knowledge we can push them, so that, in the limit, they are as close to open as they can be.

History: Begun in 2007 as the National Day of Action for Open Access, the event was originally a partnership between SPARC and students who organized local events on a handful of campuses across the USA. Since then, both student involvement in Open Access and Open Access Week itself have grown exponentially. SPARC’s student program, The Right to Research Coalition, has grown to more than 75 member student organizations, which collectively represent nearly seven million students in more than 100 countries around the world. The energy, creativity, and passion of the next generation that sparked the National Day of Action for Open Access in 2007 can now be seen in projects like the Open Access Button, a student-developed tool that helps users find freely available copies of pay walled articles. SPARC encourages advocates around the world to use the week as a catalyst for raising awareness of Open Access and to build a dialogue with the next generation about shaping the system of scholarly communication that they will inherit.

Planeta.com Wishlist: We'd like to see connections among tourism and conservation professionals and academics. Are statistics freely available? Are scholarly reports accessible? We will spotlight good examples

Open Access by Peter Suber




How open is it?

Recent Events

October 21-27 Open Access Week is an annual scholarly event which takes place during the last full week of October in a multitude of locations both on- and offline around the world. Activities include talks, seminars, symposia, or the announcement of open access mandates and other milestones.

The theme of 2013's Open Access Week is “Redefining Impact." If there are any takeaways from previous efforts in opening and sharing access to information is that what is most effective is the most widely understood. Meaningful interaction with knowledge requires that we learn how to communicate across sectors. If we truly engage people at all points of the dialogue, then the impact we can make will the greatest and the most surprising.

Ron Mader: "I am currently unable to organize a local 'open access' event when locals have no understanding of what 'open access' means. It may be understood theoretically, but these words are outside the vocabulary. Let me explain. I live in southern Mexico where few people speak English. Trying to explain concepts like 'open access' is a big challenge. I welcome any suggestions on introducing the ideas and hosting a walk-and-talk to explore them in depth."

Questions: Is there a way to connect the noble ideas of Open Access Week with traditional conferences? Would anyone be interested in editing a 'call to action' for event planners to make their information and events open access? Could we create an 'open access' scorecard for academic publications and international events?

Check out what groups are doing with Article Level Metrics to change the way scholarly communication is measured—read the SPARC Innovator article on the creators of the San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA).

Start planning and posting your events now to get maximum participation!

Some ideas for collateral at your events: use the official templates to create buttons, flyers, stickers to hand out and promote open access at your events. Create posters to have as backdrops to your speakers.

Are there people right on your campus who could speak? Has your campus been using Open Access Funds? Showcase your progress. See how other campuses are using their funds.

To help you start planning watch the SPARC Webcast with Brian Glanz on Hackathon’s. You could build an event around a simple Hack.

Open Access Button

Creative Commons: November 18 marks the launch of the Open Access Button, a browser bookmark tool that allows users to report when they hit paywalled access to academic articles and discover open access versions of that research. The button was created by university students David Carroll and Joseph McArthur, and announced at the Berlin 11 Student and Early Stage Researcher Satellite Conference.
http://blog.openaccessbutton.org

Here's how the Open Access Button works: Every time you hit a paywall blocking your research, click the button. Fill out a short form, add your experience to the map along with thousands of others. Then use the tools to search for access to papers and spread the word.
