Event description

Description

This year's Open Access Week theme encourages participants to think about equity issues and collaborative dynamics in open scholarship. This tweetchat focuses on open scholarship and activism so that we can discuss topics across 'open access activism' AND the use of OA resource creation and sharing in activist initiatives. How do these initiatives happen, what do they achieve, and what are the motivations of those involved?

Hashtag: #OAweek
