International Open Access Week 2018

The University Library will be hosting a series of events from 22-25 October about open research.

In celebration of the International Open Access Week 2018, the Library’s week-long series of workshops and events will give research staff, students and open access contacts an opportunity to network, share and learn from each other, with the aim of increasing their research visibility, dissemination and collaboration 

Events will feature external speakers from Springer Nature and Altmetric, as well as Leeds-based researchers discussing their own experiences of 'going open'. Many of the events will also include time to network and meet with people from outside the University, such as representatives from the White Rose University Press.

Please note that all events will be held in the Edward Boyle Library and some of the workshops are aimed at specific groups, so do check the fine print.

The events are:
