This year’s theme is an invitation to answer the question of what benefits can be realized by making scholarly outputs openly available. “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. 

  • Open in order to increase the impact of my scholarship.
  • Open in order to enable more equitable participation in research.
  • Open in order to improve public health.

These are just a few examples of how this question can be answered. 

International Open Access Week is a global, community-driven week of action to open up access to research. The event is celebrated by individuals, institutions and organizations across the world. The official hashtag of Open Access Week is #OAweek. We also invite the community to use the hashtag #OpenInOrderTo to start an online conversation about the benefits of an open system of communicating scholarship.
