SPARC and the World Bank to co-host kickoff event for 2014 International Open 
Access Week

On Monday, October 20th, from 3:00 to 4:00pm EDT, SPARC and the World Bank will 
co-host the official kickoff event for International Open Access Week 2014 with 
a reception to follow.  The event will be held at the headquarters of the World 
Bank in Washington, DC with a live webcast for online participation around the 
world.

The program will focus on this year’s theme of “Generation Open.” Speakers will 
discuss the importance of students and early career researchers in the 
transition to Open Access and explore how changes in scholarly publishing 
affect scholars and researchers at different stages of their careers.

Registration for the in-person event will open in September.  For those 
planning to participate virtually, the live stream of the kickoff can serve as 
programming for a local event or a watch party.  To receive updates on Open 
Access Week 2014, including the SPARC-World Bank Kickoff Event, please fill in

To be held from October 20 – 26, 2014, International Open Access Week is an 
opportunity for the academic and research community to continue to learn about 
the potential benefits of Open Access, to share what they’ve learned with 
colleagues, and to help inspire wider participation in helping to make Open 
Access a new norm in scholarship and research.
