Subject: Open Access Week 2013 Planning - Start Posting your events now

Hello All!

Whether your events are focused on getting faculty and students informed on Open Access Issues or if you want to promote Open Access projects your campus has begun, start planning and posting your events now<http://www.openaccessweek.org/events> to get maximum participation!

The theme this year is “Redefining Impact” –so what does that mean for your campus? See what groups are doing with Article Level Metrics to change the way scholarly communication is measured—read the SPARC Innovator article on the creators of the San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA)<http://www.sparc.arl.org/initiatives/innovator>.

Some ideas for collateral at your events: use our template<http://www.openaccessweek.org/page/englishhigh-resolution-1> to create buttons, flyers, stickers to hand out and promote open access at your events. Create posters to have as backdrops to your speakers.

Are there people right on your campus who could speak? Has your campus been using Open Access Funds<http://www.sparc.arl.org/resources/funds>? Showcase your progress. See how other campuses are using their funds<http://www.sparc.arl.org/sites/default/files/fundsinaction.pdf>.

To help you start planning watch the SPARC Webcast with Brian Glanz on Hackathon’s<http://www.sparc.arl.org/resource/resource-type/webcast-video-podcast/demystifying-hackathon-brian-glanz>. You could build an event around a simple Hack.

Play these resource videos at or build your event around them:

Livestream (or show the recorded) Kickoff event at the World Bank<http://www.sparc.arl.org/events/oaweek2013kickoff> on Monday October 21st. Speakers will soon be announced.

Watch the Right to Research’s PhD Comics “Open Access Explained<http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L5rVH1KGBCY&feature=player_embedded#t=4>” video Link:

Watch Jack Andraka explain how Open Access<http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G55hlnSD1Ys&feature=player_embedded#t=0> to research allowed him to discover breakthrough diagnostic for pancreatic cancer.

Join a group<http://www.openaccessweek.org/groups> here to get more ideas or see what others are planning.

Let us know if you need any other ideas. Use the resources here on the Open Access Week website.

And here’s to an engaging and lively Open Access Week 2013!
