Open Access” to information – free, immediate, online access to the results of scholarly research, and the right to use and re-use those results – is transforming the way research and scientific inquiry is being conducted. It has direct and widespread implications for academia, medicine, science, industry, and for society as a whole.
Each year McGill University Library celebrates Open Access Week and uses the week to discuss the benefit of making scholarly research broadly accessible on the internet.
The cornerstone of the open access initiative is to make the results of scholarly research freely and immediately accessible online. One way to achieve this is by placing versions of your already published work in an institutional repository.

Established in Anatolia in the 13th century, the Ottoman Empire progressively expanded its domination to the Balkans, parts of Southeast and Central Europe, Western Asia, the Caucasus, and North Africa. At the beginning of the 17th century, the empire ruled over 32 provinces, and a population of approximately thirty million. Encircling the Mediterranean, with Constantinople (today’s Istanbul) as its capital, this incredibly powerful state remained at the center of interactions between the East and the West until 1922.
