Open Access Explained with RSA Animate
What is open access?
Nick Shockey and Jonathan Eisen take us through the world of open access publishing and explain why it is becoming more important.
There is a growing momentum across the world to understand best practices for open access.
Just as we teach our students about Creative Commons, we also need to inform them about resources for open access journals.
Be sure to bookmark Collected Repositories which links to resources such as OpenDOAR.
This was produced in partnership with the Right to Research Coalition, the Scholarly Publishing and Resources Coalition and the National Association of Graduate-Professional Students.
To learn more see resources on Open Access Week:
On Monday October 22nd SPARC and The World Bank Co-sponsored an event entitled “Perspectives on Open Access: Practice, Progress and Pitfalls” at the World Bank. This event served as a kickstart to the sixth Open Access Week.
