Reaching Out to the Humanities for Open Access Week


Open Access Week 2014 logo

Today marks the start of Open Access Week, now in its 7th year. From October 20 through 26, individuals and institutions worldwide will hold events (workshops, symposia, lectures, and even upload-a-thons) centered on the issue of open access.

Last year, dh+lib compiled a round-up of events that focused on the humanities, and we’d like to do the same this year. If you’re hosting an open access event that specifically reaches out to disciplines in the arts and humanities, please send relevant info to or tweet us! And if you’re interested in writing up your OA efforts in the humanities, pitch us your idea—we’re always looking for original pieces that showcase the work of our community.

Curious what others are up to this week? Check out the mammoth list of OA Week events over at the Open Access Directory.
