Celebrating Open Access Week


The sun shines on St Andrews for the end of Open Access Week, as we prepare to welcome our keynote speaker Gary Hall, Professor of Media and Performing Arts at Coventry University, co-founder of Open Humanities Press and Series Editor, Living Books about Life to our main event:


The humanities and open access: opportunities and challenges

We have had great feedback and many interesting comments over the course of the week, from a student who believes open access means the quality of articles she reads will improve with increased visibility, to early career researchers who plan to publish only open access as a point of principle from now on.

Going forward, our Open Access Libguide will continue to evolve, and one of our priorities will be to update information on funder open access mandates on our web pages.

We will circulate a report on the week's activites and build on our experince for the coming year.

Today's suggested resource is the book "Open Access" by Peter Suber
