Open Access


International Open Access Week 2019

From October 19 to 25 the International Open Access Week is celebrated around the world, an annual initiative to promote open access (OA) in the academic and research world. This year its motto is Open with purpose: taking action to build structural equity and inclusion. We detail below the different activities that the UAB libraries have prepared this year to promote open access:

Follow us on Twitter! We will tell you what we have done and what we are doing in Open Science!

Open science, this new paradigm in the way research is carried out, is increasingly being implemented at the UAB. The Institutional Open Access Policy for UAB research data, the “readme” template for the data set, the training session on how to publish open access educational resources, the 200,000 records in the DDD are some examples of the activities and goals achieved in open science over the past year.

From October 19 to 23, follow us on the @bibliotequesUAB account with the hashtag #CienciaObertaUAB, at 11am and 6pm. We will tell you what open science is and you will catch up on what we have done in recent months and what we are now working on.

Cheer up, this is a great opportunity to learn more about open access!
