International Open Access Week

Open Access Week is 23rd - 29th October 2017.

The theme for this year’s International Open Access Week is “Open in order to…”. This theme is designed to be an invitation to answer the question of what concrete benefits can be realised by making scholarly outputs openly available. Please click here to visit our open access week webpage to see all the events that you can be involved in during this week.

Below are some of the highlights:

  • Join in the fun by completing the phrase "Open in order to …" and tweet it along with the hashtags #OAweek  #OpeninOrder  #LboroOA
  • Drop-in sessions to help with all things open access; including but not limited to LUPIN, Institutional Repository, Data Repository and ORCID IDs.

The drop-in sessions are running on Thursday 26th October 11:00-13:00 in the Graduate House Training Room, and Friday 27th October 12:00-14:00 in the Library, Seminar Room 2.

If you would like us to come and talk to your research group about anything to do with open access please contact Lennie Foster at and she will be happy to come along and meet with you.
