Open access week 2018, 22-28 October

Posted on by

Next week is open access week around the world, a good time for us to consider our roles as thinkers, critics and scholars and, within that context, how accessible our work is to other scholars and the society we are here to act as the critic and conscience of. In the words of the University’s own policy “open access serves both the public good, in line with Otago’s commitment to social responsibility, and the University’s interests in maximising the potential impact of our scholarship.” (Open Access Policy, General Principles 1 (a).)

Each day next week we’ll be mailing, Yammering, tweeting or posting an OA tidbit to digest and reflect on these things. Get involved with the following events, including (yes! you better believe it) a movie about paywalls.
