Get involved in Open Access Week for a free coffee and your chance to win an iPad Mini!
Open Access Week 21st- 27th October 2013
The Library invites you to participate in international Open Access Week , 21st - 27th October 2013.
Open Access Week is an initiative to help raise awareness within the academic research community of the benefits of Open Access.
What is Open Access?
Open Access provides a way to promote broader access to academic research outputs for scholars, students, professionals and the general public. Open Access is immediate, free of charge, online access to research articles via the internet.
How do I get involved?
One way authors can participate is to self-archive a copy of their publications. At UoN a copy of your peer-reviewed manuscripts (the Final Accepted version) can be archived into the University's institutional repository, NOVA.
To promote Open Access Week 2013 the Library is inviting UoN staff and RHD students to archive copies of their peer-reviewed manuscripts (Final Accepted version). Each author submitting copies of their manuscripts to NOVA during our Open Access Week promotion will go into the draw to win an iPad Mini. In addition, each submitting author will receive a coffee voucher which can be redeemed at any of the cafés in the Auchmuty, Huxley, or Ourimbah Libraries. You can also advise us if you prefer to redeem your voucher at another UoN campus.
