Description

It's Open Access Week 23-27 October! Find out what Open Access research can do for you.

Our speakers will talk about running an Open Access journal, eBureau projects, and how the public can help create history and open resources. And where does copyright fit into all this? All these questions will be answered and more!

Join us for an informative and collegial afternoon!
