comunicazione scientifica e sulla società in generale.

“Open in order to…”.


This year’s theme is an invitation to answer the question of what 
concrete benefits can be realized by making scholarly outputs openly 
available. “Open in order to…” serves as a prompt to move beyond talking 
about openness in itself and focus on what openness enables—in an 
individual discipline, at a particular institution, or in a specific 
context; then to take action to realize these benefits.

Open in order to increase the impact of my scholarship. Open in order to 
enable more equitable participation in research. Open in order to 
improve public health. These are just a few examples of how this 
question can be answered.

Established by SPARC and partners in the student community in 2008, 
International Open Access Week is an opportunity to take action in 
making openness the default for research—to raise the visibility of 
scholarship, accelerate research, and turn breakthroughs into better 
lives. This year’s Open Access Week will be held from October 23^rd 
  through the 29^th ; however, those celebrating the week are encouraged 
to schedule local events whenever is most suitable during the year and 
to utilize themes that are most effective locally.

This year’s theme of “Open in order to…” also recognizes the diverse 
contexts and communities within which the shift to Open Access is 
occurring and encourages specific discussion that will be most effective 
locally. We invite the community to help us translate this prompt into 
new languages at bit.ly/translateoaweek <https://www.bit.ly/translateoaweek>

“Effectively communicating the tangible benefits that Open Access 
provides is essential for open to become the default in both policy and 
practice,” said Heather Joseph, Executive Director of SPARC. “This 
year’s theme will help focus discussions during Open Access Week on 
those benefits of openness that are most compelling locally—whether 
that’s increasing citation counts, enabling anyone to learn from the 
latest scholarship, or accelerating the translation of research into 
economic gains—and encourage action to realize these benefits.

Last year’s “Open in action” theme encouraged all stakeholders to take 
concrete steps to make their own work more openly available and 
encourage others to do the same—from posting pre-prints in a repository 
to pledging to educate colleagues about Open Access. The 2017 theme will 
help build on that emphasis on action by identifying the end goals Open 
Access can enable and encouraging individuals and institutions to take 
steps to achieve those goals.

International Open Access Week is a global, community-driven week of 
action to open up access to research. The event is celebrated by 
individuals, institutions and organizations across the world. The 
official hashtag of Open Access Week is #OAweek. We also invite the 
community to use the hashtag #OpenInOrderTo to start an online 
conversation about the benefits of an open system of communicating
