“Open for Climate Justice” is the theme for this year’s International Open Access Week (October 24-30). We will progressively add content to this page, so please check for the updates.
RMIT University has embarked on a collaborative partnership approach to drafting and delivering an Open Scholarship Policy that will ensure research is visible and accessible, and that learning is collaborative and flexible.
To find out more about this project and contribute to the discussion:
The Library provides a range of webinars, guides and information to support our researchers and educators in making their outputs and resources open access. For more information on how the Library supports Open Scholarship, see:
The RMIT's Climate Change Transformations (CCT) research group helps society understand and address the far-reaching challenges that climate change poses in the context of other complex societal and environmental changes and issues.
"This year’s Open Access week theme seeks to encourage connection and collaboration among the climate movement and the international open community. Sharing knowledge is a human right, and tackling the climate crisis requires the rapid exchange of knowledge across geographic, economic, and disciplinary boundaries."
Our joint call today is principled, lifesaving and urgent. Worldwide people need States, international bodies, science and medical institutions and practitioners to ensure the broadest possible sharing of scientific knowledge, and the broadest possible access to the benefits of scientific knowledge. This is key to any effective public health policy. It is essential to the combat against climate change.
