Open UBC is held in conjunction with the International Open Access Week, which encourages the academic community to come together to share and learn about open scholarship initiatives locally and worldwide. Two days of diverse events will highlight areas of open scholarship that UBC’s researchers, faculty, students and staff will participate in as well as guests from the global community.
Themes will include: open education, open research, open access in the arts, open science, open data, and altmetrics (alternative metrics). All of these events are FREE and open to the public, students, faculty, staff and schools. This year’s Open UBC events will be held October 31 to November 1, 2012, in conjunction with UBC’s Celebrate Learning Week. All sessions will be held in the Lillooet Room (301), of the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre at UBC unless otherwise stated.
