The (OA)Week ahead: Getting started on Open Access Week 2011

Another free SPARC online event

Tuesday, February 22, 2011

1:00 – 2:00PM Eastern

Registration is free, but required. RSVP by February 21 at
http://sparc.arl.org/civicrm/event/register?id=68&reset=1.



In 2010, Open Access Week (OAW) was the largest and most successful yet.
With just under 900 participants in 94 countries, last year’s event was no
less than three times larger than it was just a year before. Hundreds of
videos, photos, blog posts, and more were released to promote and highlight
the benefits of Open Access to research and take the conversation even more
deeply into the research community – and they absolutely did.



Participants from the academy – including humanists, climate change
scientists, provosts, research funders, Nobelists, and lawyers – really took
advantage of the occasion to share their insights on how Open Access has had
an impact on their work and lives. (Read more at
http://www.arl.org/sparc/media/10-1026.shtml).



OAW 2010 was also a great reminder to us of the work and opportunities that
lie ahead.  We’ve isolated a need to dig deeper into the academy and find
ways to meet faculty on their own terms – to find ways to bring Open Access
Week, so to speak, to campus every day of the year. While we’ve made
crucial advances, we’ve only just started to make the inroads needed to
engage the community of scholars and researchers.



Please join us on February 22 for a conversation on how to deepen faculty
engagement at your institution. Heather Joseph and Jennifer
McLennan, representing the Open Access Week organizing coalition (SPARC),
will present participant feedback from last year and invite your suggestions
on how to take the Week to yet another level in 2011.

This online event is held in conjunction with Open Access Week 2011 (October
24 – 30). Open Access Week, a global event now entering its fifth year, is
an opportunity for the academic and research community to learn about the
potential benefits of Open Access (OA), to share ideas with colleagues, and
to inspire wider participation in establishing Open Access as a new norm in
scholarship and research. Universities, colleges, research institutes,
funding agencies, libraries, and think tanks have used Open Access Week as a
platform to host faculty votes on campus open-access policies,
to issue reports on the societal and economic benefits of Open Access, to
commit new funds in support of open-access publication, and more.



Register to participate and learn more about what you can do at
openaccessweek.org.
