Open Access Week is a great opportunity to highlight open-access publications, milestones and achievements, and for publishers to consider how Open Access can help increase the impact of what they publish.
  • The Public Library of Science has been a very active participant in Open Access Week since its second year, promoting participation around the world and using the event to highlight the birthdays of its two flagship journals – PLoS Medicine and PLoS Biology.
