Since 2008, the global science community has observed the Annual Open Access Week that holds in October. During this week, access to knowledge advocates engage their communities to raise consciousness, build literacy, and access development on openness and access to knowledge. With the support of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), the Department of Data and Information Science will initiate OA Week in the University of Ibadan in 2022. This event will be marked by a brainstorming session focusing on the Changing Landmark of Access to Knowledge in Africa. Join us in a two-hour brainstorming session to interrogate the performance of OA in Africa.
