Open Access Week

October 27, 12:00pm - 2:00pm
Manoa Campus, Queen Lili’uokalani Center, Room 412 Add to Calendar

Open Access is Sustainable Access for All!

Faculty scholars and researchers routinely give away the fruits of their labor to for-profit publishers of scholarly communication.

1) Research library budgets cannot sustain ever-increasing subscription costs for scholarly journals; open access journals provide a different model for scholarly communication that empowers the author rather than the publisher.

2) When research is published in open access journals and/or placed in open access institutional repositories, members of the public can access needed research results, which are often funded with tax-payer monies.

3) A growing body of research suggests that open access to research articles and research data spurs on new discoveries and is more cited than research locked behind a pay wall.

Join us in exploring these myriad efforts to liberate scholarly communication during the international celebration of Open Access Week, 2010.

This is the first of 3 events organized for the week:


Speaker: Christine Sorensen, Dean of UH Manoa College of Education
