We’re celebrating International Open Access Week!

posted by Donna Stewart on 2022-10-20T10:20:00-04:00 in Open Access | Comments


This Year's Theme:  Open For Climate Justice

This year’s focus on Climate Justice seeks to encourage connection and collaboration among the climate movement and the international open community. Sharing knowledge is a human right, and tackling the climate crisis requires the rapid exchange of knowledge across geographic, economic, and disciplinary boundaries. International Open Access Week is a time to coordinate across communities to make openness the default for research and to ensure that equity is at the center of this work.

Open Access Week 2022: Open for Climate JusticeHERE ARE JUST SOME OF THE WAYS YOU CAN PARTICIPATE

Visit the Open Access information table: What is Open Access? and the OpenStax Exhibit in the Library all week for free resources that can benefit you. Review the full schedule of events and create your own itinerary.

  • Get Advice from Your Colleagues
    Some of our faculty participants in CSU’s 2021 Textbook Affordability Summer Symposium recorded short videos to describe their experiences using open educational resources (OERs) and to provide advice for other faculty considering doing the same. These videos demonstrate the value of OERs for student achievement, as well as CSU faculty members’ commitment to student success. These videos are online and can be viewed anytime.
  • Learn from the Experts to Expand your Research
    Do you have questions about expanding your research impact? Learn what EngagedScholarship @ Cleveland State University can do for you in this pre-recorded webinar, including publishing journals or books; posting articles; creating your own Scholars Page; learning about copyright; measuring your impact with PlumX Metrics, and more.
  • Register for an ORCID account
    Visit the Reference Center during Open Access week to register for an ORCID account and receive your own persistent digital identifier that distinguishes you from every other researcher. A Reference Librarian or Consultant can help you register in minutes!
  • Apply for a Textbook Affordability Small Grant
    Revise or remix an existing open textbook for your class. Visit the Open Textbook Library to peruse peer-reviewed textbooks and decide if one of them is right for your course, or send your syllabus to your personal librarian to map your current materials to openly licensed content for you to consider.


About Open Access Week

Now in its fifteenth year, International Open Access Week facilitates the growing movement toward increased discoverability, sharing, use and preservation of information.  Academic and research communities are invited to learn how open access maximizes and promotes their work, provides stronger ownership for researchers and authors, and ultimately, has far reaching benefits for academia and society as a whole.International Open Access Week
