In celebration of Open Access Week, the Wayne State University Library System will host a series of events relevant to copyright and fair use, open access, journal publishing, and WSU’s Institutional Repository, Digital Commons from October 22 – 26. Please join us for these events and learn more about Open Access initiatives on the WSU campus.

Open Access Week, a global event now entering its sixth year, is an opportunity for the academic and research community to continue to learn about the potential benefits of Open Access, to share what they’ve learned with colleagues, and to help inspire wider participation in helping to make Open Access a new norm in scholarship and research.

“Open Access” to information – the free, immediate, online access to the results of scholarly research, and the right to use and re-use those results as you need – has the power to transform the way research and scientific inquiry are conducted. It has direct and widespread implications for academia, medicine, science, industry, and for society as a whole.
