Organized By: Library of the Medical Faculty of Mannheim, University Heidelberg
Latest Activity: Oct 1, 2015
At the Library of the Medical Faculty of Mannheim, University of Heidelberg researchers, doctors and students will hear about the pros and cons of Open Access. Then we will play a little bit :): Participants will measure their weight on a bathroom scale and decide to dedicate it to the pro or con side of Open Access. At the end of this action we will know what the current “weight” of Open Access is at the Universitätsmedizin Mannheim. “Incidentally” you will find out more about the Open Access Publishing Fund and other Open Access Services available to you as a member of Heidelberg University.
We invite other institutions to do the same. At least we can measure worldwide the weight of pros and cons of Open Access :).
