International Open Access Week 2018

A week of events on open research and how you can increase your research visibility, dissemination and collaboration

We're celebrating International Open Access Week 2018 on 22–25 October. Our week long series of workshops and events will give research staff, students and open access contacts an opportunity to network, share and learn from each other.

The events will feature external speakers from Springer Nature and Altmetric, as well as Leeds based researchers discussing their own experiences of "going open". Many of the events will also include time to network and meet with people from outside the University, such as representatives from the White Rose University Press. All events will be held in the Edward Boyle Library.

A full breakdown of events, and links to book your spot are listed below. Please note, some of these workshops are aimed at specific groups, so do check the fine print.
