International Open Access Week, 24–30 October 2011

Writing about web page http://www.openaccessweek.org/

This week represents the fifth annual International Open Access Week, a celebration of the movement aiming to make barrier-free access to information a “new norm in scholarship and research”.

Here at Warwick our commitment to Open Access is realised by the Warwick Research Archive Portal (WRAP) a central University archive for open access versions of journal articles and theses. Through the commitment of the WRAP Team and the essential contributions from our research community we currently have more than 5600 full text items that in the last month attracted over 28,000 hits and 24,875 downloads of our items.

Obviously the success of WRAP would not be possible without the material our researchers and research postgraduates choose to allow us to make available to the world. So a big thank you to the researchers who have made this possible and for allowing the valuable results of your research to be open to all.

More information on open access and WRAP can be found on the Library pages.

Any Warwick researchers wanting to submit material to WRAP can do so from the submission page or by emailing the WRAP team. Also look out for future open access events to be held around the University in the new year...

    That’s an impressive amount of full text Yvonne. Congratulations to everyone at Warwick.

    @Jackie, thanks! I’m very proud of the team and everything we have achived in the past year. Looking at the stats it’s an increase of more than 2200 items in a year which is a huge number but still only a small fraction of what Warwick publishes in a year, obviously we still have more work to be getting on with!
