In the week from 22 to 26 October, the Netherlands will be bringing the benefits of Open Access to the attention of higher education and research institutions. Seminars, workshops, lectures and film clips will encourage the institutions to focus on Open Access to research results. The programme can be found at www.openaccess.nl/oaweek2012. The Dutch event is part of International Open Access Week, which involves more than a hundred countries worldwide. SURF is coordinating the Dutch Open Access Week.
