Open Access Week

To celebrate the International Open Access Week, the EUI Library organises every year a series of events with EUI departments and their members as well as EUI Alumni, to discuss and raise awareness on topics related to the value and practice of Openness in academia. Discussions also touch on funding opportunities to publish in Open Access and the importance of developing a researcher online identity and presence.
This year the theme is Community over Commercialization and the Open Access Week takes place 23-29 October 2023. This theme encourages a candid conversation about which approaches to open scholarship prioritize the best interests of the public and the academic community—and which do not.
The official twitter (X) hashtag for the week is #OAWeek.
