Open Access Week 2015, to be held from October 19th to the 25th, is an important time of year for the Open Access movement. Originally launched by students in 2007, the week has grown from students on a handful of campuses working together into a truly international event. This year, the theme of the week is Open for Collaboration, so what are we doing?
