Open Access is an international movement that uses the Internet to unlock the doors that once hid knowledge. The Open Access movement is gaining ever more momentum around the world. Many research funders and policy makers now require the unrestricted sharing of research results.
Open Access Week is a global event, now in its 9th year, promoting Open Access as a new norm in scholarship and research.
The theme for 2016, Open for Action, encourages all stakeholders to take concrete steps to make their own work more openly available and encourage others to do the same.
