Open Access Staff Weeks give library staff the opportunity to take a look behind the scenes at other institutions. Participants have the opportunity to learn about best practices in the implementation of OA - for example, in the design of publication funds or the realilsation of OA in different organisational units. The event format offers a unique opportunity to exchange knowledge and experience and aims to strengthen collaboration between institutions.

A total of five Open Access Staff Weeks will take place at various institutions within the project. Further Open Access Staff Weeks are being planned. If you have any questions about this format, please send an email to
