What are your goals for OA Week 2014?
Our team has decided to focus on student awareness. Over the past few years we have worked closely with academics and admin staff, but now we are turning our attention to the students and making them aware of OA Week and getting them interested. We have come up with a range of OA activities which students can get involved in.
