International Open Access Week 2019

The theme for 2019's International Open Access Week (held from October 21-27) is "Open for whom? Equity in Open Knowledge". The essential question of this year's celebration asks:

Whose interests are being prioritized in the actions we take and in the platforms that we support? Whose voices are excluded? Are underrepresented groups included as full partners from the beginning? Are we supporting not only open access but also equitable participation in research communication? These questions will determine the extent to which emerging open systems for research will address inequities in the current system or replicate and reinforce them. (Source: SPARC)
