Open Access Week events at CU

October 16, 2012

Open Access Week is a series of events meant to get everyone thinking about the potential benefits of free and open access to published research. Imagine how much more quickly we could progress, and how efficiently publicly funded research would run if the default journal publication setting was "Open Access". For more information check out the OA week website:

Grad Student Engagement Survey

October 9, 2012

Our very own talented and intrepid NAGPS liaison Kate Allison has lead a pioneering effort to survey graduate students on the satisfaction and engagement they experience in their graduate programs. This survey is being piloted here in the CU system and with the School of Mines, and will soon spread throughout the Western states and the rest of the country.
