Open Access Week 2011

Open Access Week is spreading around the globe! Attend lectures, seminars, weminars, discussions, conferences, workshops, webcast or meetings at the university or institution closest to you. What am I talking about? This month, from October 24th to October 30th, people interested in Open Access are gathering to talk about, get informed or just share their experience with open access.

Everybody from activists and students to professors and researchers and all those in between are organizing a bunch of events all around the globe – and a fair share of those are in Europe. If you’re interested in OA, this might be the perfect opportunity to deepen that interest, learn something new and meet new interesting people (who are into OA of course).


Here’s a short event list in cities all over Europe – for a full list, check the Open Access Week event log:

Don’t let an event close to you pass without a psychology student attending! If you didn’t find your university or library on the list above, ask around or start your own OA event.


If you’re organizing an event and I didn’t mention you above, leave a comment and I’ll add you.
