Open Access Week 2017

Monday, 23 October 2017


Wake up for Open Access with a coffee on us!

It's International Open Access Week and the Library is inviting all UON authors to get involved. You can submit a full-text copy of your peer-reviewed manuscript (Final Accepted Version) to NOVA before midnight on 29th October 2017 and you will receive a coffee voucher which can be redeemed at Bytes and Expresso Plus Cafés (Auchmuty, Huxley) on Callaghan Campus. If you are not based at the Callaghan Campus we can arrange for you to have a coffee at a cafe at another University of Newcastle Campus.

Open Access Week provides an opportunity to highlight and 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.  One significant way in which authors can participate is to self-archive copies of their peer-reviewed manuscripts (Final Accepted Version) into the University’s institutional open access repository, NOVA at nova@newcastle.edu.au.  A large number of UON staff and HDR students are currently actively archiving copies of their journal articles and conference papers and making these available online via open access in NOVA.  The Library would like to encourage more UON authors to self-archive their work and to learn more about the benefits of open access
