For this occasion, the organizers have put together a nice website/blog where you can find all the information. You can watch videos (two so far, but there will be more). You can help spread the word:
Prior to Open Access Day, bloggers will be invited to draft a personal post addressing the following key points:
* Why does Open Access matter to you?
* How did you first become aware of it?
* Why should scientific and medical research be an open-access resource for the world?
* What do you do to support Open Access, and what can others do?
We will ask the community to time these posts for release on Open Access Day so that the whole blogosphere gets the message that Open Access matters! A series of videos is also being prepared to address the same questions.
PLoS and (we hope) another prestigious publishing partner will then choose the winner and announce it on their respective sites. A free goodie bag including an iPod Nano, and other items (T-shirts, etc.) will be the prize for the most compelling post.
Watch this space…
