UBC is once again participating in the International Open Access Week event, where the research and academic community worldwide come together to share and learn about open access and other connected global open scholarship movements.


UBC’s own event – Open Access Week@UBC - showcases a week of diverse events highlighting areas of open scholarship that UBC’s researchers, faculty, students and staff participate in. These events include discussion forums, lectures, seminars, workshops, and symposia on topical and timely issues from every discipline. We invite everyone to participate either by organizing events, highlighting events already coinciding with the Week, or attending the events to be scheduled.


All of these events are FREE and open to the public, students, faculty, staff and schools.
