Open access is a topic as important for the French research community as for any other, and, yet, no major events to mark International Open Access Week had ever been held in Paris—until now.

Paris Open Access Week 2012

At the end of October 2012, Open Access Week finally came to the French capital, with two evenings of talks and discussions organized by MyScienceWork, in partnership with the University of Pierre and Marie Curie and UNESCO. Open access leaders like Bernard Rentier, Pierre Mounier and Curt Rice exchanged with professionals and students on the promise and pitfalls of OA.

In this video, get a taste for these events firsthand: the subjects tackled, questions raised and connections forged among a variety of players, all concerned about the future of scientific publishing.

See you in 2013 for the next edition of Paris Open Access Week!
