International Open Access Week at AUCA

International Open Access Week at AUCA

October 21, 2019

International Open Access Week, a global event held between October 21-27, is an opportunity for open access advocates to engage their communities to teach them potential benefits of Open Access, to share what they’ve learned with colleagues, and to help inspire wider participation to make Open Access a new norm in scholarship and research.

Since 2007 as Open Access Day, the event was originally based on a partnership between the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition and students who organized local events on a handful of campuses across the United States. Since then, International Open Access Week has grown exponentially and now celebrated globally.

As a part of the 2019 International Open Access Week celebration, AUCA Library and Research Office are organizing a series of events.   

Wednesday, October 23: Library will host the “Copyright and Open Access” meeting open for faculty members, researchers, librarians and students from AUCA and other educational institutions in Bishkek. Representatives of the Kyrgyz State Service of Intellectual Property and Innovation (Kyrgyzpatent) will talk about using objects of copyright and related rights in higher educational institutions. Ms. Gwen Franck, Open Access Program coordinator at EIFL International Library Consortium will talk about open access and open science. 

Thursday, October 24: AUCA Library and Research Office will co-sponsor “Open Science” training for faculty, librarians, and researchers of AUCA and other universities. The training will be delivered by Ms. Gwen Franck, the Open Access Program coordinator at EIFL International Library Consortium.
