Open Access Day (24 Oct 2016)

18/10/2016 to 25/10/2016

Open Access Day (24 Oct 2016)

The Open Access Day is to share with the University community the benefits of opening up research. Themed as “Open in Action – Enhancing Research Impact @CUHK AIMS”, the event is tied in with the International Open Access Week to highlight the needs of taking action now to open up research through the new Academic Information Management System (AIMS) and the institutional repository Research Portal. This new system provides a new avenue for the dissemination of research outputs, showcasing the research excellence of the University and facilitating international networking and collaboration. Opening and sharing research is the means to reap these benefits.

A mixture of programmes are organized below running from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on that day. The Opening Ceremony will be held at the Beacon and officiated by Prof. Benjamin Wah, Provost, Prof. Fanny Cheung, Pro-Vice-Chancellor / Vice-President, Prof. Lutz Christian Wolff, Dean of the Graduate School, Prof. Walter Ho, Director of ORKTS, and Ms. Louise Jones, University Librarian. You are welcome to register at here.
