Open Access Week competiton – WRN

The week of Monday 18th – Sunday 24th October has been allocated as Open Access Week across the globe. Now in its 4th year, this dedicated week aims to promote ‘Open Access as a new norm in scholarship and research’.

To mark the occasion the WRN are running a competition for partners with an Open Access theme.

They are looking for your best repository success story. Whether it’s a story of success convincing an academic researcher to interact with the repository, or a tale of success regarding a deposited item that ended up proving the wide-reaching audience of the repository.

Entries can be as long or as short as you want and they are looking to put the best stories together in a blog post and perhaps even in a new advocacy learning object!

The competition is open from now until the Friday before Open Access Week (15th October).


There will be a prize available for the winning entry.

Good luck!
