Open Access Week

It’s Open Access Week! This year’s theme is ‘Taking Action to Build Structural Equity and Inclusion.” 2020 marks the third consecutive year the theme for International Open Access Week will focus on the urgent need for action on equity and inclusion. Open Access (OA) literature is digital, online, free of charge, and free of most copyright and licensing restrictions. Open access makes scholarly work available to everyone, not just those who can afford to purchase subscriptions to the journals and monographs. The Durham Statement on Open Access to Legal Scholarship, calls for all law schools to stop publishing their journals in print format and to rely instead on electronic publication coupled with a commitment to keep the electronic versions available in stable, open, digital formats. Visit the Open Access Week website for more information. Did you know that CALI’s eLangdell Press is a leading publisher of OER materials in legal education?
