Open Access Week 2014

Open Access bannerThis year, Open Access Week was marked from 20 to 26 October 2014. Open Access Week, a global event now entering its eighth year, is an opportunity for the academic and research community to continue to learn about the potential benefits of Open Access, to share what they have learned with colleagues, and to help inspire wider participation in helping to make Open Access a new norm in scholarship and research.

Providing open access to research results and data can greatly enhance the impact of research on agricultural development. CGIAR’s Open Access mandate has been in place since March 2012, when the CGIAR Consortium approved the CGIAR Principles on the Management of Intellectual Assets, committing to making its data and research outputs open and harvestable.

Check out some CGIAR activities from Open Access Week 2014.
