Open Access Week

by Scott Walter 10/22/2012 12:20:00 PM

Open Access Week is being celebrated this year between October 22 – 28, and recognizes global efforts among scholars, scientists, librarians, and publishers to promote “the free, immediate, online access to the results of scholarly research, and the right to use and re-use those results as you need.” In addition to providing access to open access journals in all fields through use of resources such as the Directory of Open Access Journals, the DePaul University Library promotes open access to content created at DePaul and/or by DePaul faculty, staff, and students, through Via Sapientiae, DePaul’s open access repository to scholarly content, including the Vincentian Heritage Collections and to DePaul’s own open access journals, including the Journal of Religion and Business Ethics.

To learn more about Open Access Week, please visit the Open Access Week Web site  or follow Open Access Now, a new initiative of the Center for History and New Media at George Mason University. To learn more about open access initiatives at DePaul, or about how you can integrate information about open access, author rights, or scholarly communications into your teaching or research, please contact Jim Galbraith, Associate Director of Libraries for Collections and Scholarly Resources.
