Don't miss Open Access Week 2021

As a part of this year's Open Access Week, the University Library, in collaboration with several other Norwegian research libraries, invites you to a series of lectures on topics related to Open Science.

Publisert: Endret:

Open science is something that is becoming increasingly relevant, not least in connection with Plan S. We therefore hope that many academic staff at UiS will take the time to follow all or part of the program during this year's Norwegian Open Access Week. It is held from 25th to 31st of October, and is part of an annual international event.

Representatives of several important research organizations and universities will participate as speakers. All the lectures are digital on Zoom, and open to anyone interested. Therefore, take a look at the program, and sign up for what is relevant to you!

If you have any questions regarding Open Access Week, you can contact Linda Johnsen or John David Didriksen at the University Library.
