Open Access is a growing international movement that uses the Internet to throw open the locked doors that once hid knowledge. It encourages the unrestricted sharing of research results with everyone, everywhere, for the advancement and enjoyment of science and society.
You should participate and register. Already, there are 100 organizations taking part, and the registration closes tomorrow so you have to act fast!
You can help by spreading the word. On October 14th, there will be a lot of stuff to do and some cool videos to watch (and embed into your sites).
And if you are a blogger, get ready for the contest – the details of the blogging competition will be posted next Friday (October 10th) on the Open Access Day blog, on the PLoS blog and right here, on my blog, so come back and check it out next week.
