Now in its seventh year, Open Access Week promotes the availability of free, immediate, online access to the results of scholarly research, and the right to use and re-use those results as required. Such freely available access to information is regarded as vitally necessary, having direct and widespread implications for academia, medicine, science, industry, and for society as a whole.

The Library has already taken positive steps towards Open Access through our Institutional Repository, which increases the visibility of Loughborough’s research while digitally preserving the University’s intellectual output.

And if you have any queries or issues regarding the IR or Open Access, our team of  Academic Librarians are on hand to help. Why not drop them a line?
