Open Access has attracted the attention of the world since the beginning of the 21st century. It aims to provide the free and latest research outcomes for all knowledge-seekers. Open Access has obtained support from scholars, libraries, publishers and related Institutions. At present, there are more than 10,000 completed Open Access journals in the world.
To conform to this trend, XJTLU Library, as one of hosts, cooperated with the International Publishers Copyright Protection Coalition in China (IPCC) and publishers to hold open access seminars in past few year.
