Open Access (OA)

Open Access Week Events at AU, 24-30 October 2016

Aberystwyth University celebrated Open Access Week with a special "journal flipping" Question and Answer issue of our CADAIR Repository Newsletter.  Interviews with Matthew Jarvis, an editor of the International Journal of Welsh Writing in English, along with Dr Martin Eve, Academic Project Director of the Open Library of Humanities, and Sarah Lewis, Head of Commissioning at the University of Wales Press, offer their individual perspectives on making the International Journal of Welsh Writing in English into an open access journal without requiring the payment of Article Processing Charges (APCs).

The interviews can be accessed from the CADAIR repository website at: http://cadair.aber.ac.uk/dspace/handle/2160/43959

International Open Access Week events worldwide for 2016 were based around the theme of "Open in Action".  Further details can be found here.
