Open Science

Open Access Week 

International Open Access Week is a global, community-driven week of action to open up access to research.

The theme for this year’s International OA Week, to be held October 25-31, will be “It Matters How We Open Knowledge: Building Structural Equity.”  It intentionally aligns with the provisionally adopted UNESCO Recommendation on Open Science, of which Open Access is a crucial component.

"Open Science should embrace a diversity of knowledge, practices, workflows, languages, research outputs and research topics that support the needs and epistemic pluralism of the scientific community as a whole, diverse research communities and scholars, as well as the wider public and knowledge holders beyond the traditional scientific community, including Indigenous Peoples and local communities, and social actors from different countries and regions, as appropriate." (UNESCO Recommendation on Open Science, Page 7)

UKIM support open access in a variety of ways. Almost all of the journals supported by UKIM are with open access to general public. Please find available journals published by UKIM members here.

Vladimir Trajkovikj Ph.D. from FCSE is a UKIM ambassador for open science. He was an initiator for UKIM to sign Berlin Declaration for open access. He is UKIM representative in OpenAIRE - AMKE, and Macedonian representative in the Open access research infrastructure in the Western Balkans.
