Open Access Week is an international event designed to promote awareness of open access resources and their potential benefits for researchers. Authors and researchers around the world support open access by making their journal articles, textbooks, dissertations, media, and more openly available to colleagues and the general public. Open access has the potential to democratize access to education, to increase the exposure and use of significant research, and to enhance the overall advancement of scholarship worldwide.To learn more about open access, explore this guide or find out more about open access services at WSU.
