“Open with Purpose: Taking Action to Build Structural Equity and Inclusion”

“Science should not be a luxury and knowledge should not be a commodity, it should be a basic human right.” – Jack Andraka, Open Access Week 2014

COVID-19 has undoubtedly shone a light on the need for accessible research. As the pandemic continues and researchers work hard to enhance the world’s knowledge of the virus, open access research offers an opportunity to build a more equitable system of knowledge sharing. Open Access Week 2020 celebrates the theme of “Open with Purpose: Taking Action to Build Structural Equity and Inclusion” and we are pleased to reflect briefly on some steps we have taken which support this theme.

EDP Sciences is delighted to learn that this year’s Nobel Prize in Physics has been awarded to Roger Penrose, Reinhard Genzel and Andrea Ghez.
