Open access to information has the power to transform the way knowledge is shared. Open access is the free, immediate, online access to scholarly research. Journals often charge readers a fee to access the research articles they publish. When research is published open access, it means the article is free for anyone to read and download.
International Open Access Week is celebrated by individuals, institutions, and organizations around the world. It is an opportunity for the research community to celebrate the benefit of open access information, which can lead to shared knowledge, improved policy changes, and increased recognition of social issues.
At CanFASD, we recognize the value in open access research as it helps us to share research and knowledge about fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD) with a larger number of people. To celebrate Open Access Week, we’d like to highlight a few of our more recent open-access publications. Check them out below!
