This week, the library and information community along with others in academia are celebrating International Open Access Week. In a post on the Oxford University Press (OUP) blog, OUP publisher Rhodri Jackson lists five key open access to research events since OUP’s beginning participation in the Open Access (OA) Movement: 1) Nucleic Acids Research (NAR) converts to OA in 2004/05; 2) the National Institutes of Health (NIH) mandate OA in 2008 to NIH-funded research; 3) Springer buys BioMed Central (BMC) in 2008; 4) Public Library of Science (PLOS) ONE‘s growth in 2007; and 5) The ‘Finch’ Report in 2012, positively impacting OA.

For details on each of the five listed events, see Jackson’s full post here.
