A message to all members of Open Access Week

Hi everyone,

We're looking at next steps for Open Access Week planning and I just took a look at the make up of our participants so
far. WOW. If you haven't noticed the breadth and depth of the
international group you're participating with here, do take a look.
It's pretty amazing. (Do an advanced search at http://www.openaccessweek.org/profiles/members<../../profiles/members/>).
We have a tremendous show from India and the U.S., plus a lot of
participants from Canada, Japan, China, South Africa, Brazil,
Germany... 60 countries so far are represented by Open Access Week
participants. We've already surpassed last year!!

This is really great progress. To help keep up the pace, we have a two-fold request for input to share.

First: For those who have not yet decided to host Open Access Week activities, what kind of information would be useful for you to have? What types of
factors are influencing your decision to participate or not?

Second: For those whose plans are underway, what type of support would be most useful to you right now? What would
you like to discuss at our next GMT-5 Webcast, or what would you like
to be discussing in your region of the world? Let us know. We can help.

Please share your thoughts via comment to the blog post at http://www.openaccessweek.org/profiles/blogs/update-and-call-for-input, or to me via email, by July 9.

Thanks! Really look forward to hearing from you.

Best wishes,
