Open Access is the free, immediate, online availability of research articles combined with the rights to use these articles fully in the digital environment. Open Access seeks unrestricted access and unrestricted use of scholarly research and literature to spread knowledge and allow that knowledge to be built upon.
The Year of Open is a global focus on open processes, systems, and tools, created through collaborative approaches, that enhance our education, businesses, governments, and organizations.
We want to hear from you during the Year of Open. What information, tools, project and resources have you created? Is there something you’ve accomplished that you’d like to share? With your contribution and involvement, we can elevate the Year of Open.
