Why choose Open Access

For Open Access Week we asked past winners of the HSE Open Access awards and OA advocates to talk about their reasons for choosing Open Access. They talk about what open access means to them. Throughout Open Access Week 2017 we'll be sharing one of their testimonials each day.
