First time at the Estonian University of Life Sciences: International Open Access Week

Open Access Week is a global event and an opportunity for the academic and research community to learn about the potential benefits of Open Access, to share what they’ve learned with colleagues, and to help inspire wider participation in helping to make Open Access a new norm in scholarship and research. 


From 24th to 30th October, on the initiative of DataCite Estonia, the libraries of the University of Tartu, Tallinn University of Technology, Estonian University of Life Sciences and Tallinn University present the possibilities of open science.
During OA Week the Estonian University of Life Sciences will be hosted different events and introduced Open Science services and initiatives. 


In the EMU library, on Monday and Wednesday from 12 AM to 2 PM, you can communicate with specialists on topics related to open science and scientific data, ask questions and receive instructions.

During the whole week, it is possible to participate in the open access week events organized by other universities and get to know various services and platforms.

The EMU library joins the scientific poster collection campaign initiated by UT.

We invite all researchers, doctoral and master's students who have presented poster presentations at scientific conferences to preserve them in the digital archive EMU DSpace. The poster file should be sent to with the main metadata (title, authors, conference name and venue, and date of presentation). The collected posters are published under the CC license in the digital archive EMU DSpace.
