Do you know a K-State instructor who has led the way in converting his or her classrooms to open or alternative textbooks? Or do you have a peer who has published extensively in open access journals or submitted dozens of articles to the institutional repository, K-REx?

The Center for the Advancement of Digital Scholarship, or CADS, at K-State Libraries is accepting nominations for Open Access All Stars now through Friday, Oct. 6.

Our selected Open Access All Stars will be recognized at a celebration event at 2:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 27, during Open Access Week 2017.

As noted, nominees should demonstrate that they have contributed to the Open Access movement in some way, such as:

  • Publishing in open access journals.
  • Depositing scholarly materials in the institutional repository K-State Research Exchange, or K-REx.
  • Hosting or publishing open access content on New Prairie Press. 
  • Creation of open source software.
