Open Access Week 2014: what is happening at the EUI?

A- A A+

Monday 20 October marks the beginning of Open Access week. Open Access is often defined as the free online access to scholarly research publications. The EUI officially supports the principle of open access and Cadmus, its research repository, provides as much full text as is allowed by the copyright policies of scholarly publishers. EUI Open Access Policy is an extract from the EUI Code of Ethics in Academic Research.



This year’s Open Access Roundtable will focus on “Young Scholars between Open Access and Traditional Publishing”.  It will take place on Thursday morning 23 October at the Badia. At the end of the day there is also a presentation on Open Data. All are very welcome to participate upon prior registration. Twitter feed: #OAweekTableEUI

Roundtable powerpoint presentations soon to be posted.
