Open Access Week

October 23 - 29, 2023 | Everywhere

First Open Access Week at the University Campus in Rijeka, Croatia

SHOW (Share/OpenAccess/Worldwide) will be the first-of-its-kind event to celebrate Open Access Week in Croatia, held through October, 26 to October 27th 2011 at the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences within the University Campus in Rijeka, Croatia.

The idea is to raise awareness among Croatian students about the importance of free flow of information and open access to research literature, which is not a familiar term, by raising questions about what students are already well familiar with, i.e., intellectual property.

The students will be introduced to Copyleft movement, Creative Commons licensing, Open Projects, Open Content movement, Open Access movement and the Right to Research Coalition action and they will be invited to join the debate about the chances for the world of open values.


More information about the SHOW and the landing page will be presented soon!


Some of the activities (with possible alterations) are listed below and more are to be announced. Hopefully, you will join our effort to push the OA movement forward!
