The Open Access Directory (OAD) is pleased to announce that it will once again serve as a comprehensive source of information about events celebrating Open Access Week (OAW). This year's OAW is coming fast -- October 18-24, 2010.
Because OAD is a wiki, event organizers can enter their details directly. If you're planning an OAW event, please describe it on the wiki and help us spread the word about your event. http://oad.simmons.edu/oadwiki/Events_celebrating_Open_Access_Week
OAD is working with the SPARC-organized OAW site at Ning. If you've posted a message about your event at the SPARC site, you can provide full details at OAD. If you post your details at OAD, you can also publicize your event through the SPARC site.http://www.openaccessweek.org/
* About the Open Access Directory
The Open Access Directory (OAD) is a compendium of simple factual lists about open access (OA) to science and scholarship, maintained by the OA community at large. By bringing many OA-related lists together in one place, OAD makes it easier for everyone to discover them, use them for reference, and update them. The easier they are to maintain and discover, the more effectively they can spread useful, accurate information about OA. The OAD is hosted by the Graduate School of Library and Information Science at Simmons College and supervised by an independent editorial board.
OAD contributors must register before they edit, but registration is free and easy.
We are also thrilled to report that this summer OAD passed the milestone of one million visitors. Thank you everyone for your support.
Robin Peek and Peter Suber, co-founders of OADhttp://oad.simmons.edu
