UC Riverside Library to host Open Access Week 2017
The University of California, Riverside Library will host International Open Access Week 2017, as part of a global effort called Open Access Week.
‘The event will be on Wednesday, Oct. 25, in the Orbach Science Library, Room 240, from 9:30 am - 11:00 am. “Open in Order to Save Data for Future Research” is the 2017 event theme.
Open Access Week is an opportunity for the academic and research community to learn about the potential benefits of sharing what they’ve learned with colleagues, and to help inspire wider participation in helping to make “open access” a new norm in scholarship, research and data planning and preservation.
The Open Access movement is made of up advocates (librarians, researchers, publishers, etc.) who promote the free, immediate, and online publication of research.
The program will provide information on issues related to saving open data, including climate change and scientific data. The panelists also will describe open access projects in which they have participated to save climate data and to preserve end-of-term presidential data, information likely to be utilized by the university community for research and scholarship.
The program includes:
This will be the eighth International Open Access Week program hosted by the UCR Library.
The event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
