Open Access Week Activitees at University at Albany

Open Access Week 2014 is a global event that encourages wider participation in making 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 reuse those results as needed – has the power to transform the way research and scientific inquiry are conducted.  Join us in this year’s celebration!
