Join us to celebrate Open Access Week at the University of Ottawa!
From October 23 to 29, 2023, we will engage with this year’s theme: “Community over Commercialization”

This year’s International Open Access Week theme,  “Community over Commercialization”, aims to spark conversations around the dominant commercial models that fail to prioritize community interests. These commercial models create inequities, such as the creation of a monolingual research system, and barriers to researchers in under-resourced disciplines, as well as those from under-funded institutions.

How can you participate?
