Open access week declared for 2009. For the first time, the popular global event will be extended from one day only to a whole week (October 9th-23rd) in order to accommodate widespread interest in the movement toward Open Access to scholarly research results. This year will mark the first international Open Access week. This event will present an opportunity to broaden awareness and understanding of Open Access to research, including access policies from all types of research funders within the international higher education community and the general public.
