Open Access (OA) refers to free, unrestricted and permanent online access to research outputs (and research data). OA benefits researchers, institutions and society as a whole. It is now a trend and a requirement from many research funding agencies, such as the Research Grants Council in Hong Kong.

Open Access Week @ CityU (28 November – 2 December 2022), organized by the CityU Library, features a series of activities to raise OA awareness among our research community and share with them tips on achieving OA. You are cordially invited to join the events!
