Open Access Week (19-23 Oct 2020)

Open Access Week runs from 19 to 23 October 2020, and we’d like to use this as an opportunity to deposit as many papers into our new Open Access Institutional Repository as we can!

Deposit-athon stalls open to help you with depositing papers.

Depositing makes your work instantly available to anyone in the world, increasing its chances of impact. You might be surprised at how much of your work you are able to make open access, even without paying the often hefty article processing charges.

Come to our Deposit-athon stalls next week and we’ll help you work out which papers you can deposit, and deposit them. Stalls are available:

Monday 19 Oct, 10am-1pm, Commerce Library, Pipitea

Tuesday 20 Oct, 10am-1pm, Hub, Kelburn

Wednesday 21 Oct, 10am-1pm, Hub, Kelburn

Thursday 22 Oct, 10am-1pm, Hub, Kelburn

Friday 23 Oct, 10am-1pm, Architecture & Design Library, Te Aro

Bring your papers on a memory stick (or put them online somewhere you can access from our stall) and we’ll help you.

Let’s see how many papers we can upload to make VUW research that much more discoverable and usable!
