Open Access Week is an annual global event established by Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition (SPARC) to raise awareness about open access and to call for open access to be the norm in education and research. The theme for 2020 is “Open with Purpose: Taking Action to Build Structural Equity and Inclusion”.
3 key points for this year’s open access week:
- Openness as a powerful tool for knowledge sharing
- Opportunity for scholarship to be more equitable
- Discuss for diversity, equity, and inclusion
