This year’s International Open Access Week runs from 21-27 October and takes as its theme ‘Open for whom? Equity in Open Knowledge’. We’re marking it with the sessions below. And meanwhile we’ll be putting our main efforts into organising another ‘alternative’ Oxford OA Week in spring 2020. Watch this space!
Tuesday 22nd October 2019, 3-4pm at the Radcliffe Science Library:
Open Access Oxford – What’s happening? Our regular introduction to OA publishing, ‘Act on Acceptance’ at Oxford and how to deposit your research in our open access repository, plus how to comply with funder mandates and the REF 2021 OA policy. Book here.
4-4.30pm: Deposit drop-in. If you have an article to deposit or an open access question that needs help, bring it along at the end of the above session.
Wednesday 23rd October, 1-2pm at the Old Road Campus Research Building:
OA drop-in. Need information or advice about anything related to open access? Come along to the atrium and ask our library specialists.
Wednesday 23rd October, 2-3pm at the Radcliffe Science Library:
Authors, copyright and open access: making it work for you.
An introduction to open access copyright permissions for authors, focussing on your journal article, preprint or thesis. What open access rights do you retain when signing the publisher agreement for a journal article? Are you permitted to self-archive your article in your institutional repository? Which Creative Commons licence to select for your preprint? Your choices affect what you and others can do with your work. We decipher the jargon so you can understand your options and make informed decisions. Book here.
These sessions are open to current staff and students of the University. If you have any questions please email the OA Enquiry team on email@example.com.
