Open Access Week 2021

Open Access Week 2021
October 25-31, 2021
Today marks the start of Open Access Week, which this year is organized under the theme, "It Matters How We Open Knowledge: Building Structural Equity."

The theme is linked to UNESCO's recommendations, which represent a landmark step towards establishing global goals, foundations and standards for open science. According to UNESCO's guidelines, open science should embrace the diversity of knowledge, practices, methods, languages, topics, and research outputs, responding to the needs of the entire scientific community as well as individuals and institutions outside the community.

This year's theme of the week (titled "It matters how we open knowledge: Building structural equality") is an opportunity for us to present a tool that brings us closer to building a system of scientific knowledge exchange: throughout the OA week, from 25-30 October, at the Medical University of Silesia in Katowice, we are promoting the local Polish Medical Platform
