Open Access Week
Happy Open Access Week! We're celebrating the movement to make more knowledge free to all. Philosopher and activist Peter Suber (who has recently written a book on the topic) has defined open access as literature that is "digital, online, free of charge, and free of most copyright and licensing restrictions."
He has written a very brief introduction to open access. Barbara Fister has also written a short overview of the topic. Or if you're looking for inspiration in under 140 characters, you can follow Open Access Hulk on Twitter. This week we will be blogging about some of the ways we support open access here at Gustavus.
