“Open in order to…” serves as a prompt to move beyond talking about openness in itself and focus on what openness enables—in an individual discipline, at a particular institution, or in a specific context; then to take action to realize these benefits.
This year marks the 25th anniversary of Education Policy Analysis Archives, an open-access, peer-reviewed journal supported by Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College. It is the longest-running OA journal at Arizona State University and one of the pioneering open-access journals in the history of the OA movement.
H.R. 3427 / S. 1701, the bipartisan Fair Access to Science and Technology Research Act (FASTR), will accelerate scientific discovery and fuel innovation by making articles reporting on publicly funded scientific research freely accessible online for anyone to read and build upon. This toolkit provides suggested actions and scripts for advocating with your congressional representatives.
The World Bank has chosen to celebrate with the theme “Open in order to end extreme poverty” – the World Bank’s mission and rationale behind its OA initiatives. Panelists from a variety of perspectives and organizations will share their thoughts on how OA activities contribute to their work and goals. We invite you to watch online and join the conversation.
