The international Open Access Week takes place from 23 to 29 October under the motto "Community over Commercialisation". This year's motto encourages an open discourse on the increasing commercialisation of science communication and focuses on perspectives and approaches that put the interest of the research community back at the centre.
Technische Universität Berlin is also participating in the global week of action. TU Berlin supports a sustainable implementation of Open Access. To this purpose, the university promotes various innovative publication models, initiatives or projects that encourage Open Science structures, avoid expensive profit-driven business models and focus on the interest of the research community and the public.
Read interviews with TU members on the Blog "Publizieren an der TU Berlin" during Open Access Week (German only) or visit the poster exhibition in the Central Library or digitally on Flickr. You can find more information and tips on the event website.
