Getting the information you need; the role of Open Access in health and wellbeing
Hosted by the Institute of Public Health (IPH) and the Regional Library Dr. Steevens Hospital, HSE. Open Access (OA) is the immediate, freely available, online access to research outputs. These outputs include peer-reviewed journal articles, conference papers and datasets of various types. The restrictions to use, commonly imposed by publisher copyright, patents or other mechanisms of control do not apply.
This was the third in a series of Open Access seminars organised as part of the Annual Open Access Week, a global event that provides an opportunity to learn more about the benefits of Open Access.
