We are pleased to announce a series of virtual events organised by White Rose Libraries for International Open Access Week 2021, which takes place from October 25th-31st. These events will explore and discuss open and reproducible research practices taking place at the Universities of Leeds, Sheffield and York, whilst drawing on themes of collaboration and this year’s Open Access Week theme: It Matters How We Open Knowledge: Building Structural Equity.
The White Rose Universities are each committed to fostering a culture of open research amongst their academic communities, based on the principle that any aspect of the research cycle can be shared freely and made available for reuse by anyone in the world. These events are aimed primarily at researchers from all three institutions and will showcase different approaches taken across a variety of disciplines and at different career stages.
All events are free to attend and further details and registration links can be found below:
