The Open Access Week 2023 advocates for the theme “Community over Commercialization,” emphasizing the significance of fostering a collaborative and inclusive research environment. This theme highlights the important role of prioritizing communal benefits and knowledge dissemination over profit-driven motives. By promoting open access to scholarship, this initiative aims to amplify the value of shared information, collaborative endeavors, and the democratization of knowledge. Raising awareness among the research community about the value of prioritizing the common good over commercial interests can foster a culture of open and equitable access, and collective progress. It encourages the research community to actively engage in the dissemination of their work, fostering a vibrant and interconnected research ecosystem that thrives on inclusivity and shared expertise.
