As you might be aware, it's Open Access Week! Now in its 8th year, this annual event highlights the importance of free licensing in scholarly research. It's a cause strongly aligned with what Wikimedians do.
There are at least two online events involving Wikimedia that you can engage with regardless of where you live: * A weeklong virtual edit-a-thon, for Wikipedia articles relating to OA: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/The_Wikipedia_Library/OA_week * A panel discussion I will moderate next week, about the intersection of Wikimedia and OA: http://wikistrategies.net/oa-wikipedia-panel/ (This will be in the evening in the Americas, morning in Asia/Australia; recording will be available too.) There are several other, more local events involving Wikipedia and OA: http://openaccessweek.org/main/search/search?q=Wikipedia+2015 What's happening in your community? Are you planning to participate in any OA Week activities? -Pete [[User:Peteforsyth]] _______________________________________________ Wikimedia-l mailing list, guidelines at: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Mailing_lists/Guidelines Wikimediaemail@example.com Unsubscribe: https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimedia-l, <mailto:wikimedia-l-requ...@lists.wikimedia.org?subject=unsubscribe>
