This year's Erasmus staff training week took place from Monday 23th to Friday 27th March 2015. Its topic was "Open Access initiatives, from libraries to research".
According to the Budapest Open Access Initiative (BOAI, 2002), Open Access to academic and scientific literature means its free availability on the public internet. Because it allows quicker access to scientific discoveries, increases international visibility for the researcher and is a realistic alternative to commercial models of publication (whilst maintaining the principle of peer review), the Open Access movement has been changing the work of scientists. During this staff training week, we proposed to question the new role Open Access defines for university libraries, as experts of bibliometry and publishing matters, in order to help the scientists to take the most advantage of it.
