It’s Open Access Week (24–30 October) and this year’s theme is ‘Open for Climate Justice’.
The term ‘climate justice’ acknowledges that climate change will impact communities and generations unevenly and that we will need to work towards fairer outcomes. This year’s OA Week provides an opportunity to join together, take action and raise awareness around how open research can be a means for climate justice.
