Combating climate change with Open Access Week 2022
Published 07 October, 2022
When International Open Access Week launched back in 2008, a major goal was to highlight the potential benefits of publishing research open access (OA).
According to OA Week organisers SPARC, open access describes the free, immediate, online access to the results of scholarly research, and the right to use and re-use those results as needed.
And for many OA supporters, one of its key advantages is that it accelerates discoveries to combat the global challenges we are facing. This proved to be the case during the COVID-19 pandemic, when the volume of OA papers and open sharing of research data soared, enabling researchers to quickly build on results and knowledge.
One of the fundamental global challenges we face today is climate change. In recognition of this fact, the theme Open For Climate Justice has been chosen for this year’s Open Access Week, which runs from 24-30 October.
Here at KeAi, we are proud to be an open access publisher with 137 OA journals. To celebrate Open Access Week 2022, we are inviting you to join us in the following activities.
