The week of October 18th is international Open Access week, with events and activities taking place world-wide on university and research campuses. We believe that Open Access, researchers making their research articles available for free to all, is an exciting and important shift in the availability of research for scholars and the public. We would like to support the idea of a Google Doodle on Open Access for this week.
