UCI Libraries Open Access Week

UCI Libraries will celebrate International Open Access Week, October 23-29, 2017!

"Open Access is the free, immediate, online availability of research articles combined with the rights to use these articles fully in the digital environment. Open Access is the needed modern update for the communication of research that fully utilizes the Internet for what it was originally built to do—accelerate research." (SPARC)
