International Open Access Week 2014 October 20-26, 2014

Open access is an opportunity to maximise the exposure of your research by making it available, without barriers, to the world.

An increasing number of research funders (including the ARC and NHMRC) are mandating open access to research findings. Curtin University Library is here to help you navigate the open access world, fulfil your obligations and disseminate your research to the widest possible audience.

During Open Access Week (October 20th-24th), the library is running seminars to help you understand the open access landscape. There will also be group screenings of the Australian Open Access Support Group webinar series, followed by general discussion.
