Globally, since 2011, every last week of October, the International Open Access Week is celebrated. The event is originated in the actions carried out since 2007 by Students for Free Culture and Alliance for Taxpayer Access, from the USA, in the event “National Day of Action for Open Access”.
The theme for 2019 is “Open for Whom? Equity in Open Knowledge” (www.openaccessweek.org).
