Open UBC will be held Oct. 24-30 in conjunction with International Open Access Week, which encourages the academic community to come together to share and learn about open scholarship initiatives locally and worldwide. Open UBC showcases a week of diverse events highlighting areas of open scholarship that UBC’s researchers, faculty, students and staff participate in. These events include discussion forums, lectures, seminars, workshops, and symposia on topical and timely issues from every discipline.
Everyone is invited to participate either by organizing events, highlighting events already coinciding with the Week, or attending the events to be scheduled. All of these events are free admission and open to the public, students, faculty, staff and schools.
