October 24 – 28, 2016 is Open Access Week and the Pollak Library is participating in this global event that focuses on Open Access as it relates to information and research.
The Open Access display in the Faculty Development Center (Pollak Library, 2nd floor south) highlights some of the recent articles published in Open Access journals by California State University, Fullerton faculty. It also recognizes faculty who were recipients of this year's Pollak Library Open Access Publication Fund. The exhibit includes information to learn more about the benefits of Open Access, publishing and funding opportunities, and ways to integrate Open Access into research and scholarship. An "Open Access Computer Station" continues to be made available to read the featured articles or to browse this Open Access LibGuide.
Librarians are also hosting at Open Access Jeopardy game at the following times and locations. Participants get prizes and are entered into drawings to win $25 gift certificates for Starbucks, Target, Aloha Java, or In-N-Out.
In an effort to raise awareness about common misconceptions and myths regarding open access publishing, the Open Access Week display on the south side of the Pollak Library, second floor, contains an infographic called "Open Access: Myths Debunked." The following references were utilized in gathering data for this graphic for those who desire more information:
