Open Access Week

October 24 - 30, 2022 | Everywhere

Yes it is HERE!  The JIDC T-shirt!  Unveiled for the up-coming Open Access Week.  Here it is:


The JIDC T-shirt is designed by JIDC’s own Creative Designer Jeff Coombs.    

This Friday we will announce the winners of the Open Access Week (OA Week) and the JIDC original design T-shirt giveaways.  To promote OA Week and JIDC Open Access participation, we are giving away OA Week T-shirts and JIDC T-shirts to JIDC Open Access Group Members.  For more information on joining, contact me (akelvin(at)jidc(dot)org) or see the previous OA post.  If you are interested in Open Access Week you can join on their website and see our JIDC Group Page.    Donna Okubo at PLoS and SPARC is also a great contact (dokubo(at)plos(dot)org).

I also mentioned that I will be posting pictures of JIDC editors and members in their OA Week T-shirts.  Today I am posting a photo of Tracy Zhao (Assistant Specialist for JIDC) supporting Open Access publishing.  My next OA post will have a picture of a JIDC Editor sporting this shirt.


OA Week (October 24th to 28th) is fast approaching and I am working hard to have some great OA posts for the JIDC Blog that week.  As described in my previous Open Access Week Post, there will be posts discussing the JIDC Mentoring Program, Scientific Writing, and the Importance of Open Access Publishing.  

My first OA post briefly describes the importance of Open Access for JIDC. 

I hope that you enjoy the Open Access activities as much as I have enjoyed preparing them!

Hi Tracy! Welcome to Canada! You look right at home here in your Open Access T-shirt!
Hi Nikki, Thanks! Toronto is a pretty nice city and I am living a new style of life here.
The T-Shirt Looks great. Really a different one and a good way to focus attention on the journal and Open access. Where can I get the T-shirt.

Hi Ashish!  Thanks, we love the shirt too!  You can be entered in a draw to win one by joining JIDC Group in Open Access Week or you can email me to order one.


Thanks for joining the Group!

Hello Alyson. Thanks. I was really pleased to see my name out there in the lucky draw. Great site and JIDC really means a lot to me as my first paper was published in the journal.

Thank you.

Hi Ashish,

Thank you very much for your kind response.  Your words mean a lot to our journal.  Congratulations on your paper and good luck with your future research!




PS send me your address by email and I will have the shirts sent to you this week.
