Event Description

On Monday, October 20th, from 3:00 to 4:00pm EDT, SPARC and the World Bank will co-host the official kickoff event for International Open Access Week 2014 with a reception to follow.  The event will be held at the headquarters of the World Bank in Washington, DC with a live webcast for online participation around the world.

The program will focus on this year’s theme of “Generation Open.” Speakers will discuss the importance of students and early career researchers in the transition to Open Access and explore how changes in scholarly publishing affect scholars and researchers at different stages of their careers.

Registration for the in-person event will open in September.  For those planning to participate virtually, the live stream of the kickoff can serve as programming for a local event or a watch party.  To receive updates on Open Access Week 2014, including the SPARC-World Bank Kickoff Event, please fill in the form below.

To be held from October 20 – 26, 2014, International Open Access Week is an opportunity for the academic and research community to continue to learn about the potential benefits of Open Access, to share what they’ve learned with colleagues, and to help inspire wider participation in helping to make Open Access a new norm in scholarship and research.

Maybe this is the answer?

Did anyone receive the URL for watching this live yet?  I have been promoting this and want to show it at my library.

Rhonda, when I emailed to get the URL for the livefeed to publicize it, I was told to register at, and it would be sent the day before the event.  Hope this helps.

I am lecturer of Information Science from Mizan Tepi University, Ethiopia. It is my privilege to consume the potential benefit of Open Access. Hence always I am on side of open access.
