据华盛顿特区2009年3月5日电,为适应全球旨在促进开放存取学术研究成果的开放存取运动的兴趣,2009年10月19-23日将作为第一个国际“开放存取周”载入史册。这个目前一年一次的活动,从过去的一天扩展到一整周,愿借此机会增加国际高等教育领域和公众对开放存取研究成果的认知和理解,包括了解和支持不同研究基金机构的存取政策。

开放存取周活动的基础缘于2008年参与庆祝“开放存取日”的27个国家的120所大学。活动组织者学术出版和大学资源联盟SPARC、科学公共图书馆PLoS和自由文化学生联盟,将邀请一些有助于在2009年向全球推广传播开放存取活动的核心参与者,包括图书馆电子信息网eIFL.net (Electronic Information for Libraries), 开放存取学术信息资料库OASIS (the Open Access Scholarly Information Sourcebook) 和开放存取目录OAD。2009年的活动主要强调当地教育资源为当地公众服务。

继2008年的“开放存取日”成功之后,2009年再次联合其他机构,共同发起第一个开放存取周活动活动。邀请活动参与者调适所拥有的资源供当地使用、通过组织活动、传播文献、撰写博客等来参与开放存取周,哪怕只是穿着印有“Open Access” 体恤衫也可。

Open Access Week declared for 2009
Popular global event extended over one week, October 19–23

Washington, DC – March 5, 2009 – To accommodate widespread global interest in the movement toward Open Access to scholarly research results, October 19 – 23, 2009 will mark the first international Open Access Week. The now-annual event, expanded from one day to a full week, presents an opportunity to broaden awareness and understanding of Open Access to research, including access policies from all types of research funders, within the international higher education community and the general public.

Open Access Week builds on the momentum generated by the 120 campuses in 27 countries that celebrated Open Access Day in 2008. Event organizers SPARC (the Scholarly Publishing & Academic Resources Coalition), the Public Library of Science (PLoS), and Students for FreeCulture welcome key new contributors, who will help to enhance and expand the global reach of this popular event in 2009: eIFL.net (Electronic Information for Libraries), OASIS (the Open Access Scholarly Information Sourcebook); and the Open Access Directory (OAD).

“I’m participating in Open Access Week again this year because I want to shed light on the tremendous potential of Open Access,” said Allyson Mower, Scholarly Communications & Copyright Librarian for the University of Utah’s Marriott Library. “People searching for information usually consume whatever is readily available. Open Access ensures that quality information is at people’s fingertips.”

“eIFL.net works to make intellectual outputs of developing and transitional countries more visible and more easily accessible,” added Rima Kupryte, Director of eIFL.net. “We believe that Open Access contributes to improved education, teaching, and research, and accelerates innovations and economical developments in these countries.  Open Access Week is a great opportunity to promote Open Access globally.”

This year’s program will highlight educational resources on Open Access that local hosts can use to customize their own programs to suit local audiences and time zones. OASIS will serve as the centerpiece of the 2009 program, delivering resources for every constituency and every awareness level. The Open Access Directory will again provide an index of participants on five continents, as well as their growing clearinghouse for all OA resources. Through the collaborative functionality of the two initiatives, OA videos, briefing papers, podcasts, slideshows, posters and other informative tools will be drawn from all over the Web to be highlighted during Open Access Week.

The organizers will also work with registrants to develop a variety of sample program tracks, such as “Administrators’ introduction to campus open-access policies and funds,”“OA 101,” and “Complying with the NIH public access policy” that take full advantage of available tools. Participants are invited to adapt these resources for local use, and to mark Open Access Week by hosting an event, distributing literature, blogging -- or even just wearing an Open Access t-shirt.

“After the success of last year’s Open Access Day, we’re delighted to be co-organizing the first ever Open Access Week with our fellow collaborators, again in conjunction with the anniversary of one of our flagship journals,” said Peter Jerram, CEO for the Public Library of Science. “We ask our supporters to celebrate the fifth anniversary of PLoS Medicine by spreading the word about Open Access and getting involved in the week.”

“There’s no more certain sign of the momentum behind Open Access to research than an annual, global celebration of this scale,” added Heather Joseph, Executive Director of SPARC. “Occasions like this are the best possible way to attract attention from busy faculty members and administrators, and to demonstrate the widespread appeal of Open Access. It’s SPARC’s pleasure to be working with our partners to realize the event once again this year.”
