International Open Access week events

To celebrate International Open Access Week (21 - 27 October) the University Library will be running two special Open Access sessions.

Introduction to Open Access - Tuesday 22 October, 14:30-15:30

This session provides a basic introduction to open access for those who are new to the subject. It takes the form of a presentation, followed by Q and A.  It will cover:

- What is open access? 

- Differences between green and gold open access 

- Benefits and barriers 

- What is a Creative Commons licence? 

- University of Leeds Publications Policy

Further details and online booking can be found at: Introduction to Open Access

Digital Dates Taster on Open Access: Maximising the Impact of Your Research Through Open Access  - Wednesday 23 October, 12:15-12:45

Funders are increasingly requiring that the publications arising from the research they fund are made freely available through open access publishing. In response, new open access and hybrid journals are rapidly developing and authors are faced with a range of open access choices. This short session will explain the difference between the green and gold routes to open access and when each is appropriate.

For further details and to book a place on this session see: Digital Dates on Open Access
