Open Access Week, a global event just concluding its fifth year, is an opportunity for the academic and research community to learn about the potential benefits of Open Access to research and scholarship, to share ideas with colleagues, and to inspire wider participation in establishing Open Access as a new norm in scholarship and research. Universities, colleges, research institutes, funding agencies, libraries, and think tanks have used Open Access Week as a platform to host faculty votes on campus open-access policies, to issue reports on the societal and economic benefits of Open Access, to commit new funds in support of open-access publication, and more. Open Access Week is organized by SPARC (the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition).
