Open Access Week

International Open Access Week takes place this week and provides an opportunity to discuss and promote all aspects of open research, from preregistration, protocols and citizen science through to preprint sharing, open access publishing and open data.

Check out the Library’s Open Research Practical Guide for more information on open research and consider joining the #york-open-research Slack channel where staff and PhD students can discuss issues of research openness, transparency and reproducibility, as well as this year’s OA Week theme ‘Open with Purpose: Taking Action to Build Structural Equity and Inclusion’

The Library Research Support team has also recently changed its name to the Open Research team and are offering a number of online Research Excellence Training sessions for postgraduate research students during Open Access Week (log into SkillsForge to book your place):
