Welcome to the Open Access Australasia website

Open Access Week 2021


This year’s theme:  It matters how we open Knowledge:  Building Structural Equity, aligns with the recently released UNESCO Recommendation on Open Science, of which Open Access is a crucial component.  Locally, Open Access has been highlighted as a priority area for Australia’s Chief Scientist, Dr Cathy Foley – as one of the four key pillars of her strategic work plan.  

We are planning a wonderful line up of speakers and panelists on a wide range of Open Access topics and issues. See the program here now!
