Ricordiamo a tutti che quest'anno la Settimana Internazionale
dell'Accesso Aperto cade dal 23 al 29 ottobre pv.
Il tema quest'anno è " Open in order to...." l'accento viene posto sui
benifici, sugli effetti concreti che l'accesso aperto ha sulla
comunicazione scientifica e sulla società in generale.
Ricordiamo che sul wiki OA Italia raccogliamo tutti gli eventi che
verranno organizzati durante la settimana purché ci vengano segnalati.
Pertanto aspettiamo fiduciosi la segnalazione degli eventi.
Segue presentazione del tema dal sito dell'International OA week
“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
