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.

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.
