Open Access Week 2018

The Johns Hopkins Libraries affirm a vision of open scholarship that advances research, teaching, and intellectual growth, and furthers the University’s mission of knowledge for the world. Open scholarship benefits everyone because it facilitates faster dissemination and access to knowledge by broader audiences.   Open scholarship removes barriers to interdisciplinary and international scholarship, facilitates discovery and collaboration across fields, and ensures that scholarship remains accessible through time. For these reasons, the JHU Libraries are committed to supporting the immense possibilities of open scholarship.

Open Access Week events will raise awareness of the new Johns Hopkins Open Access Policy and the current work occurring in open scholarship. Please join us in these events as your schedule allows. Questions can go to Robin Sinn, Sheridan Libraries, and Caitlin Carter, Welch Medical Library.
