International Open Access Week 2017 - University of Derby

International Open Access Week - 23-27 October 2017

Open Access Header International Open Access Week: 23-27 October 2017

This October the University is taking part in International Open Access Week to share with the global academic and research community how we support access to knowledge, and demonstrate the ways in which our research carries impact.

During our 2016 Open Access Week Derby's own Open Access Policy was launched, recognising that the University has a duty to increase knowledge through access to research, and Open Access benefits everyone through greater opportunities for access and re-use. This year will be about celebrating what research has been made Open Access and giving support to those who haven't yet published their research openly. 

  • Not sure what Open Access is? You will do by the end of the week!
  • Need to understand why Open Access is important for REF?  This week reveals the support available.
  • Want to know how to publish and promote your research? Stay tuned for advice from across colleges and research centres!
  • Want to see some of the innovating facilities used for research at Derby, and just how far our research reaches globally? Get ready to be inspired!

From October 23rd there will be all of the above, and more!

Research is a key component to the University's Inspire, Innovate and Impact strategic ambitions, and the Library and University Research Office are passionate about supporting you in your research careers. Join us during Open Access Week to generate a buzz around all our campuses.
