Want to learn more about Open Access at CERN?

Don’t miss CERN’s first ever Open Access Week from 24 to 28 October 2022!

Since 2014 CERN has had an established policy that requires that all peer-reviewed primary research articles from CERN authors be published open access (OA), making them freely accessible to readers from across the globe. In order to make it as seamless as possible for CERN authors to comply with our policy, the CERN Scientific Information Service (SIS) has established a number of enabling mechanisms and tools to support authors in publishing their work OA.

SIS has decided to hold an online event for the CERN community during International Open Access Week 2022 (24 to 28 October). The event will feature talks from a range of experts on a range of diverse topics, from the historical perspective of OA at CERN to practical sessions to support CERN authors in publishing their work OA. The event will also feature talks from representatives of publishers of journals relevant to the CERN community, who will showcase their latest initiatives for HEP-relevant disciplines and their agreements with SIS in support of open access for the CERN community.

The event will run throughout the week of 24–28 October 2022, with one 90-minute session per day. Sessions are free of charge and open to all, and all participants are welcome to join one or several sessions. You will have an opportunity to ask questions, and if you are not available to attend all the sessions, no worries! The event will be recorded, so you can catch up afterwards. 

The full agenda is available here.

It is already possible to register for this event. Please note that registration is not mandatory, but registered people will receive reminders about the sessions and will be alerted when the recordings are ready. 

If you have any questions regarding the event, please don’t hesitate to contact open-access-questions@cern.ch.
